Electrical stimulation is often used to assist in the rehabilitation of muscles after injury. However, be- cause of the high levels of muscle fatigue that occur with this type of treatment, electrical stimulation is not being used effectively. This study looks at how changing different parameters of electrical stimulation can help to reduce the amount of fatigue that occurs. If electrical stimulation can be significantly improved, care for veterans with injuries that warrant the use of this modality will be greatly advanced.
