BACKGROUND Contralaterally controlled functional electrical stimulation (CCFES) is an experimental treatment intended to improve hand function after stroke. OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of 6 weeks of CCFES versus cyclic neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on upper extremity impairment and activity limitation in patients ≤6 months poststroke. METHODS Twenty-one participants were randomized to CCFES or cyclic NMES. Treatment for both groups consisted of daily stimulation-assisted… CONTINUE READING
