THE USE OF MECHANOTHERAPY TO PROMOTE THE RECOVERY FROM DISUSE ATROPHY IN AGING RAT SKELETAL MUSCLE

Zachary Hettinger
The combination of age and disuse-related skeletal muscle atrophy predisposes older adults to reduced mobility, loss of independence, and poor quality of life. Poor health outcomes resulting from periods of disuse in older adults are exacerbated by an inability to fully recover, ultimately accelerating geriatric populations towards further functional decline. Aged-related changes to skeletal muscle viscoelastic properties, specifically of muscle extracellular matrix (ECM) stiffness, may not only impact how muscle responds during recovery, but also...
