Functional Electrical Stimulation

FES is a type of treatment utilised in Physiotherapy to help activate muscle groups that have been affected through damage to the central nervous system. Muscles may have been paralysed or weakened from a Stroke or Traumatic Brain Injury causing reduced movement and functional ability.

Common areas of use for this type of treatment are on the shoulder, wrist and foot. There are different types of devices, some which can be used for exercise purposes and others which can be incorporated into daily life and movement such as walking.
