Pathophysiology of Spasticity: Implications for Neurorehabilitation

Figure 1

Rectified electromyographic activity recorded from the flexor carpi radialis of a patient with left spastic hemiparesis from right cerebral ischaemic stroke. The muscle has been stretched throughout a range of 60° (dynamic phase) and maintained elongated afterward (static phase). The electromyographic activity not only is present during the dynamic phase, reflecting the typical stretch reflex, but persists also during the static phase.
