Electrical stimulation in treating spasticity resulting from spinal cord injury.
To study the efficacy of electrical stimulation in treating spasticity of six spinal cord injured patients, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) was applied to the dermatomes belongingExpand

Treatment of chronic wounds by means of electric and electromagnetic fields
Subjects with spinal cord injury are often distressed by pressure sores, which usually appear after prolonged pressure (wheelchair, bed) across the soft tissue which has already lost sensibility andExpand

Gait restoration in paraplegic patients: a feasibility demonstration using multichannel surface electrode FES.
Recent advances in science have aided research toward the restoration of biped gait in paraplegic patients by means of functional electrical stimulation (FES). In this paper it is shown howExpand
