Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is widely used to induce functional movements for paralyzed muscles. However, rapid muscle fatigue during FES-induced muscle contractions limits FES clinical efficacy.

This study investigates whether mechanomyography (MMG) produced from contracting muscles as a measure of their performance could be a proxy of muscle fatigue during a sustained functional electrical s...
The use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) to artificially restore movement in people with complete spinal cord injury (SCI) induces an accelerated process of muscle fatigue. Fatigue incre...
Transcutaneous electrical stimulation is a relatively new technique to evoke spinal reflexes in lower limb muscles. The advantage of this technique is that the spinal reflex responses can be obtained ...
This paper investigates an ultrasound imaging-based non-invasive methodology to quantitatively assess changes in muscle contractility due to the fatigue induced by neuromuscular electrical stimulation...
Muscle-evoked Potentials After Electrical Stimulation to the Brain in Patients Undergoing Spinal Surgery are Less Affected by Anesthetic Fade With Constant-voltage Stimulation Than With Constant-current Stimulation.
A prospective, within-subject study was conducted.
The objective is to assess if TENS will improve the muscle recovery rate from post-exercise fatigue.
Background: Electrical stimulation has been used in critical patients as an adjunct strategy of early rehabilitation. In septic or septic shock patients there are reports of only two studi...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Pulmonary rehabilitation effectively improves outcomes in patients with chronic respiratory ...
Muscle strength is the amount of force generated by muscle contraction. It could be measured in isometric, isotonic or isokinetic activity, either manually or using a dynamometer. The iso...
This study aims to investigate the clinical response to Spinal Cord Stimulation frequency parameters: 40Hz, 4000Hz and 10000Hz and explore the brain imaging changes using PET-CT scans. We ...
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
Prolonged failure of muscle relaxation after contraction. This may occur after voluntary contractions, muscle percussion, or electrical stimulation of the muscle. Myotonia is a characteristic feature of MYOTONIC DISORDERS.
Diagnosis of disease states by recording the spontaneous electrical activity of tissues or organs or by the response to stimulation of electrically excitable tissue.
Medical devices which substitute for a nervous system function by electrically stimulating the nerves directly and monitoring the response to the electrical stimulation.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
