Acute Effects with the Exercise Bicycle System: The Physiological Process
The clinical application of FES exercise cycling recently has become commercially available through a company, T.T.I.† This section describes the basic apparatus which may be used for both isokinetic leg training (phase I) and exercise bicycle ergometry (phase II). The clinical procedures for each phase (as currently recommended by the manufacturer) are also presented.
