ABSTRACT
Presents information on a study that examined the effects of increased speed on motor performance during pedaling exercise in people with poststroke hemiparesis. Characteristics of the participants; Use of pedal reaction forces to calculate work done by each lower extremity; Recording of electromyographic activity from seven lower-extremity muscles; Results and conclusion.
