Abstract Background: The long-term management of stroke is an area of increasing clinical interest, and it is important to identify therapeutic interventions that are effective in the chronic phase post stroke. Objective: To conduct a systematic review on the effectiveness of functional electrical stimulation (FES) in improving lower extremity function in chronic stroke. Methods: Multiple databases (PubMed, CINAHL, EMBASE, and Scopus) were searched for relevant articles. Studies were included… Expand
