FES effect on walking, motor recovery and brain plasticity

Functional electrical stimulation combined with physiotherapy induced better outcomes in swing phase of the gait cycle, activation of the affected ankle dorisflexor muscles, and cortical function, when compared with conventional physiotherapy alone. FES not only produce orthotic effect but also has therapeutic effect.

Efectos de la Estimulación Eléctrica Funcional en la Marcha, la Recuperación Motora y la Plasticidad Cerebral
Efectos Terapéuticos de la Estimulación Eléctrica Funcional en la Rehabilitación del Accidente Cerebrovascular

La estimulación eléctrica funcional, en combinación con la fisioterapia, mejora la fase de oscilación del ciclo de la marcha, la activación de los músculos dorsiflexores del tobillo y la función cortical, en comparación con la fisioterapia convencional exclusiva. La estimulación eléctrica funcional no sólo induce efectos ortopédicos, sino también acción terapéutica.
