The main functions of a method of functional electrical stimulation of muscles (FES) are described: diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic. The main indication for using the FES method is a deficiency of muscle function, which may be organic (due to lesions to neuromuscular structures) or functional (associated with relaxation of the muscular apparatus).(More)
A technique for investigation of biomechanical and electromyographic parameters of gait in patients with diplegic form of children cerebral palsy (CCP) was described. Peculiarities of biomechanical and innervation structure of locomotor act in such patients were found. Recommendations for muscle electrostimulation during gait were specified. The best(More)
The main features, namely diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic, of functional myoelectrostimulation (FMES) method are described. FMES is primarily indicated in muscle function deficit, which can be organic (neuromuscle disorders) and functional (muscle relaxation). Five most essential FMES operations include: (1) choice of correctable movements and(More)
Kinematic and electromyographic parameters in conduction of rhythmic movements on the bicycle ergometer were studied in a group of healthy subjects. It is shown that these movements are characterized by a stable biomechanical and innervation stereotype consisting of two interacting synergies: flexor and extensor. Force extensor synergy plays the key role(More)
The ideology of a method of muscle electrostimulation (MES) in walking up and down the stairs is under discussion in the paper. It is pointed out that the above locomotor acts, which are based on the central innervation program, are principally similar; periods and zones of muscle excitation and inhibition during the locomotor cycle are specified; MES is(More)
