Direct effect of percutaneous electric stimulation during gait in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy: a report of 2 cases.


The feasibility of using percutaneous intramuscular functional electric stimulation (FES) in children with cerebral palsy (CP) as a method to improve ankle kinematics and kinetics during gait was investigated. Two children with right hemiplegic CP had percutaneous intramuscular electrodes implanted into the gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior muscles of the… (More)
