Why DO Restorative Therapies FES therapy?
Restorative Therapies 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. Restorative Therapies FES will stimulate the nerves that connect to your muscles so that they contract and work. 

Experience these physical benefits during your Restorative Therapies FES therapy:

  • Prevent or retard disuse atrophy
  • Relax your muscle spasms
  • Increase your local blood circulation
  • Maintain or increase your range of motion
     
FES as part of activity-based rehabilitation may help preserve or improve neurological function in patients with MS According to a new study published in the  Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine in June 2014.

Retrospective cohort, 40 participants with a mean follow-up of 15 months. In 71% of patients, activity-based rehabilitation included FES therapy. Lower extremity motor scores improved or stabilized in 75% of patients with primary progressive MS (PPMS), 71.4% with secondary progressive MS (SPMS), and 54.5% with relapsing remitting MS (RRMS).

The immediate benefit we see in patients using Restorative Therapies FES is movement. Patients who could not otherwise move in this way can do it. The feedback from the device is essential - the asymmetry display, speed, distance - being able to see the effort they are putting in and getting the assistance where there is weakness or loss of motor function from the FES. Giving them the ability to maximize a motor contraction results in strength and circulatory benefits.
Patients report reduced spasticity after a session, which allows me to perform gait training immediately afterwards in a more effective manner. They also say this relief can last for up to 24 hours.
