Functional Electrical Stimulation Cycling
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Cycling is a well established rehabilitation technique that uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves evoking muscle contractions and patterned muscle activity. FES creates patterned movement in arms, legs and trunk. FES enables muscles to work and perform activities even though the muscles may be weak or paralyzed through neurological disease or injury.
Level Eleven employs the use of FES cycles at both of its facilities and prescribes their use in many patients' rehabilitation plans.
