Effect of rehabilitation session number on active and passive torque about the ankle joint. a Sub-maximal active torques (20 Hz) were used to identify optimal stimulation parameters during each rehabilitation session, and there was a positive relationship between the number of rehabilitation sessions and active torque of the ankle plantar flexor muscles. *Torque was greater at session #16 (2 Month) compared to session #8 (1 Month) (P < 0.05). # Torque was greater at session #32 (4 Month) compared to session #8 (1 Month) (P < 0.05). b Passive torque about the ankle joint was assessed at 20° dorsiflexion, and passive torque decreased over time (session 1 compared to session 32) for ROM mice, but there was no change in passive torque over time in ROM-E mice. **ROM session 32 > ROM session 1 (P < 0.05)
