Fatigue induces altered spatial myoelectric activation patterns in the medial gastrocnemius during locomotion. Academic Article uri icon


  • This research investigates the effects of muscle fatigue on spatial myoelectric patterns in the lower limb during locomotion. Both spatial and frequency aspects of neuromuscular recruitment in the medial gastrocnemius change in response to fatigue, resulting in altered myoelectric patterns during walking and running. These data may help us better understand the adaptations that occur in lower limb muscles to avoid overuse injuries caused by fatigue.
