These guidelines should be used in support of inclusion of aerobic exercise programs using cycle ergometry and resistance training with multiple muscle groups for patients with CHF.
Accordingly, one would assume that the larger exercising muscle mass during leg ergometry will produce a greater vasodilation and decrease in total peripheral resistance (TPR) when compared to the smaller muscle mass involved during arm ergometry.
Computer-controlled electrical stimulation (ES)-induced leg cycle ergometry (ES-LCE) technology was developed in the early 1980s to permit individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) to pedal via rhythmic induced contractions of the paralyzed quadriceps (Q), hamstring (H), and gluteal (G) muscle groups.
