This deconditioning of the spinal antigravity muscles
contributes to an increased injury risk to astronauts when they return to Earth's gravity, where many must undergo a period of intense rehabilitation.
It is part of the upper motor neuron syndrome of muscle weakness and is worst in antigravity muscles
2000), and the antigravity muscles
located in the lower extremity have a greater influence of decreased mechanical loading conditions such as bed rest, limb immobilization, and space flight (Kanehisa, 2005).
Lastly, the results confirm that the increase in force required in the antigravity muscles
acting to extend the knee had no effect on SV or a-v[O.
