Training in movement sequences using functional electrical stimulation
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) can be used to stimulate up to four muscles, either in succession or simultaneously. This trains daily routine movements, such as the gripping of objects. The patient uses the measurement of electrical muscle activity (EMG) to trigger the pulse. The brain receives visual, proprioceptive, and motivational feedback. This can lead to a reorganisation of the patient's brain, and thus to its improved functionality.
