Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) has the potential to address orthostatic hypotension, which is a common problem in acute Spinal Cord Injury, by activating the skeletal muscle pump in the lower extremities. A randomized cross-over study was performed in which two interventions were compared: isometric FES and dynamic FES combined with constrained stepping movements. 16 young, able-bodied subjects participated. Each subject performed three trials on separate days in random order. Subjects… Expand
