The Effect of Continuous Passive Motion Training on Neuromuscular Adaptation
After spinal cord injury (SCI), the muscular property altered due to the immobilization adaptation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of remobilization with continuous passive exercise on the adapted paralyzed muscle properties after SCI.
