The fatigue characteristics of paralyzed muscles were investigated during dynamic cycling movement induced by functional electrical stimulation (FES). The peak-to-peak (PTP) amplitude of stimulus-evoked electromyogram (EMG), after suppression of stimulus artifact, was adopted as fatigue indicator. Compared to static contraction, the effects of dynamic movement factors on the stimulus-evoked EMG, such as the intermittent stimulation, joint angle, and contraction speed, were first evaluated in… CONTINUE READING
