People with a Brain Injury
What people with Brain Injury are saying
Andy can open and close his fingers on his left hand
Before Andy started using the RT300 his left arm had little muscle tone or shape. His left hand was turned in that typical fist that you see in TBI or stroke patients. His fingers were extremely small and they did not open unless I opened them during stretching, and they were always very tight.

RT300 FES leg system
|Why DO FES therapy?
FES therapy allows your legs or arms to move against resistance (like going 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 Restorative Therapies FES therapy benefits:
Julie Waldie talks about the value of FES with TBI patients at the PEAK Center|
"Helping patients following a TBI is about aiding cortical remapping by facilitating the relearning of patterns of movement and enhancing their ability to understand sensory information. FES is a valuable treatment tool for that can assist with all three of these facets of physical therapy."
