RT300 FES arm cycling
|Why DO FES cycling?
FES cycling allows you to leg or arm cycle against resistance (like riding up a hill) even if your injury has made it difficult for you to move your arms or your legs. FES will stimulate the nerves that connect to your muscles so that they contract and work. Experience these benefits when you cycle with FES:
||RT300 aids rehabilitation at Phoenix Children's hospital|
The rehabilitation included a combination of manual stretches, therapeutic activities for facilitated weight bearing while supported by a harness and sessions on RT300 in an attempt to produce increased available range of motion and assess patient ability to create a power output.
Restorative Therapies has worked with leading pediatric clinics to help ensure that the RT300 system can be used with children. The RT300 system is the only FES cycling system for children as young as four years old.
