Walkex Functional Electrical Stimulation FES for foot drop and wrist drop

Functional electrical stimulation (FES), unlike Neuro-muscular Electrical stimulation stimulates muscles to contract during the performance of an activity (eg, sitting, standing up from a chair, walking, reaching for and manipulating objects), with the goal of improving the performance of that activity. The perceived benefit of FES for survivors of stroke is that it can facilitate practice of activities that would not otherwise occur due to lack of coordination and strength (hemiparesis). In addition, FES can engage the stroke survivor’s attention, be repetitive, be challenging, and can provide sensory and visual feedback to the participant.
