(a) T0=baseline (beginning of Phase I); T1=after 8 weeks of treatment (end of Phase I; beginning of Phase II); T2=end of treatment (end of Phase II); MVIC=maximal voluntary isometric contraction; HFMSE=Hammersmith Functional Motor Scale-Expanded; NE: not evaluated; (b) Values calculated during the first and the last session of the FES-assisted cycling exercise program; HR=heart rate; VO2=oxygen consumption; and METs=metabolic equivalents of task (measured METs were calculated as the ratio of the peak metabolic rate to the measured basal metabolic rate in quite sitting position; standard METs were calculated as the ratio of the peak metabolic rate to a standard resting metabolic rate equal to 3.5 ml/Kg/min).
