A group of 90 male paraplegics were studied to determine the optimal training protocol for isokinetic exercise induced by functional electrical stimulation of the quadriceps muscles. The parameters that were varied were the number of training sessions a week, the length of the training sessions each day, and the work-rest intervals in each training session… CONTINUE READING
