We hypothesized that 8 weeks of surface FES training on knee extensors would lead to significant improvements in maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) force, voluntary activation level (VA), twitch force, central fatigue, peripheral fatigue, general fatigue, and perceived fatigue in patients with MS.
Furthermore, there were no changes in peak motor unit firing rates during submaximal muscle actions at 10% and 50% of the isometric maximum voluntary contraction (MVC).
A quantitative amplitude analysis provided data on muscle function at rest and during moderate and maximum voluntary contractions.
Elliott: Acute Effects of Static Stretching, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching, and Maximum Voluntary Contractions on Explosive Force Production and Jumping Performance, Red.
To normalize the EMG signals, we recorded maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) of knee extensors/ flexors while the right knee of the subject was fixed at 45[degrees] of flexion.
This may be the rationale behind the recommendation of the 30% maximum voluntary contraction (MVC).
