Details This study was designed to investigate the effects of a completely passive isokinetic cycle (PIC) exercise with EMS on improving muscle strength and the changes in kinesthesia during daily activities. Sedentary females were divided into three groups. The EMS anterior and whole groups performed the PIC exercise without EMS 3 times a week for 3 weeks, followed by a 1-week break, and then performed it with EMS applied to the anterior and entire thigh muscles, respectively, 3 times a week for 3 weeks. The PIC exercise with EMS significantly increased the 30s chair stand test scores and the maximum isometric knee extension and flexion torques in both EMS-applied groups. The participants found its exercise easy and felt more comfortable with daily physical activities. The PIC exercise with EMS resulted in significant increases in muscle strength, facilitating a perceived ease of daily physical activities, while minimizing difficulties, effort, and notable muscle soreness.
