Functional Electrical Stimulation in Neurorehabilitation

June 17, 2017

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is the use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation to enhance control of movement towards the performance of functional activities. FES provides the needed repetition of muscle activity to effect neuro-plastic changes and motor learning in clinical populations such as stroke, TBI, SCI, MS and other upper motor neuron lesions. Applications include subluxed shoulders, upper limb weakness and gait retraining (more emphasis on the U/E).

Course Objectives
After completing this course, you will be able to:
1) Understand the different stimulation parameters and how each affects the neurophysiological response.
2) Appropriately manipulate stimulation parameters.
3) Apply one- and two-channel FES efficiently & effectively.
4) Modify the application of FES in real time.
5) Identify neurological clients who are appropriate for FES.
6) Apply FES with confidence for common UE and LE applications
