Abstract Recently a FES (functional electrical stimulation)-assisted rowing machine was developed to enhance cardiovascular training in people with spinal cord injuries. The machine was assessed in terms of its efficacy as a training tool. Six patients who were quadriplegic (C6–T1) and 2 who were paraplegic (T3–6) completed a series of three tests in succession: (1) leg stimulation only (quadriceps and hamstring groups)—‘Stim’, (2) arm row only—‘Row’ and (3) simultaneous row and stimulation—‘R… CONTINUE READING
