The tibialis anterior muscle of nine paraplegic men was chronically stimulated (2-6 h per day; at 10 Hz, 5 s on, 5 s off) under isometric loading conditions for 5 days per week for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks of training, muscle fatigue resistance in an electrically evoked test had increased by an average of 75% (P <.01, n = 9), but there were no changes in the… CONTINUE READING
