Abstract This paper is an overview of the status of transcutaneous noninvasive (unbraced) functional electrical stimulation (FES) for independent standing and for independent ambulation by traumatic spinal-cord injured (SCI) paraplegics with complete spinal cord lesions at the thoracic level. The paper discusses aspects of patient selection, patient training, system performance, ambulation range, medical benefits and psychological benefits. It also considers problems relating to system adoption… Expand
