Electromyographic (EMG) recordings may serve an important role in predicting torque during repetitive activation of paralyzed muscle. We compared the initial M-wave to the subsequent M-waves of the same train under fatigued and recovered conditions in the paralyzed human soleus muscle. Sixteen individuals with chronic (n = 13) or acute paralysis (n = 3) had the tibial nerve activated before and after a repetitive supramaximal stimulation protocol. The mean within-train M-wave amplitude and… CONTINUE READING
