Abstract

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is widely used for the rehabilitation of skeletal muscle after disease or immobilization. The purpose of this study was to investigate the physiological response of skeletal muscle to low frequency electrical stimulation. Fast and slow muscle fiber types respond differently to the low frequency stimulation.
