Blood flow in the gluteus maximus of seated individuals during electrical muscle stimulation.

Blood flow was measured under the ischial tuberosites of seated individuals during electrical stimulation of the gluteus maximus muscles. Eight able-bodied and six spinal cord injured subjects were studied. Muscle blood flow was measured via radioactive tracer (133xenon) clearance. Retention of xenon in adipose tissue prevented accurate measurement of blood flow in cutaneous and subcutaneous tissue. Average muscle blood flow for both subject groups was increased during stimulation as compared to rest. All subjects showed an increase in muscle blood flow during stimulation. The statistical significance from a paired student t-test was greater for able-bodied subjects (p less than .05) than for spinal cord injured subjects (p = .12). The increase in muscle blood flow produced by electrical muscle stimulation in seated individuals supports the hypothesis that electrical muscle stimulation can help prevent pressure sores.
