New applications of FES in neurorehabilitation

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) has become a standard intervention for the correction of dropped foot for conditions such as MS and Stroke. Recent developments have sought to extend the benefits to other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, or further develop techniques by the adding addition functionality such as hip flexion and extension. Additionally, there are new emerging application controlling visceral functions, improving chronic constipation in MS, SCI and PD and postural hypotension in tetraplegia. This seminar will report the results of resents studies in these areas and give practical guidance on clinical application.
