Please refer to the following:
- Mizrahi, J. Levy, M. Ring, H., Isakov, E. and Liberson, A.:
EMG as an indicator of fatigue of isometrically FES-activated paralyzed
muscles. IEEE Trans Rehab Eng 2:57-65, 1994.
- Minzly, J. Mizrahi, J. Hakim, N.and Liberson, A.: A stimulus artifact
suppressor for EMG recording during FES by a constant current
stimulator. Med Biol Eng & Comp 31:72-75, 1993.

Also, a special issue of the Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology
devoted to Muscle Fatigue in FES is now in press. The Guest Editor is the
undersigned and some of the papers to appear in this issue deal with the
above topic.
