Functional Electrical Stimulation on Paraplegic Patients. We report on clinical and physiological effects of 8 months Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) of quadriceps femoris muscle on 16 paraplegic patients. Each patient had muscle biopsies, CT-muscle diameter measurements, knee extension strength testing carried out before and after 8 months FES training. Skin perfusion was documented through infrared telethermography and xenon clearance, muscle perfusion was recorded through thallium… Expand
Functional Electrical Stimulation as a Safe and Effective Treatment for Equine Epaxial Muscle Spasms: Clinical Evaluations and Histochemical Morphometry of Mitochondria in Muscle Biopsies
TLDR
FES in horses is a safe treatment that provides clinical improvements in equine epaxial muscle spasms, and preliminary data indicate an increased density and distribution of mitochondria in Post-FES biopsies, suggesting that theclinical improvements in the FES treated horses may be related to daily increased muscle contraction and perfusion induced by FES training.

Home-based FES for long-term denervated human muscle
We will here discuss the following points related to Home-based Functional Electrical Stimulation (h-b FES) as treatment for patients with permanently denervated muscles in their legs: 1. Upper (UMN)Expand
Functional Electrical Stimulation for Equine Muscle Hypertonicity: Histological Changes in Mitochondrial Density and Distribution
TLDR
Functional electrical stimulation has proven to be advantageous in reducing muscle hypertonicity and reeducating muscle memory in the human population and has recently been used in horses, and the results show a significant increase in muscle biopsies following FES. Expand
Two years of FES training improves muscle fibers of thigh muscles in long-term thoracic level-complete spinal cord injury
TLDR
The stable muscle atrophy that characterizes longlasting spastic paraplegia and the evidence that extent of FES-training recovery does not correlate with time from SCI strongly suggest that there are no upper-time limits to begin a FES training program. Expand
Home-Based Functional Electrical Stimulation for Long-Term Denervated Human Muscle: History, Basics, Results and Perspectives of the Vienna Rehabilitation Strategy
TLDR
Home-based Functional Electrical Stimulation as treatment for patients with permanently denervated muscles in their legs is discussed, important to motivate these patients for chronic stimulation throughout life, preferably standing up against the load of the body weight rather than sitting. Expand
Electrical Stimulation Counteracts Muscle Decline in Seniors
TLDR
ES was able to improve muscle torque and functional performances of seniors and increased the size of fast muscle fibers and induced up-regulation of relevant markers of differentiating satellite cells and of extracellular matrix remodeling. Expand
Atrophy, ultra-structural disorders, severe atrophy and degeneration of denervated human muscle in SCI and Aging. Implications for their recovery by Functional Electrical Stimulation, updated 2017
TLDR
It is discovered that human denervated myofibers survive years of denervation after full and irreversible disconnection from their motor neurons and they respond to h-bFES beyond the stage of simple atrophy. Expand
Recovery from muscle weakness by exercise and FES: lessons from Masters, active or sedentary seniors and SCI patients
TLDR
Evidence that denervation contributes to the atrophy and slowness of aged muscle is discussed, and observations indicate that FES modifies muscle fibers by increasing contractions per day should be considered in critical care units, rehabilitation centers and nursing facilities when patients are unable or reluctant to exercise. Expand
Home FES: An Exploratory Review
TLDR
Home FES may be an option for patients looking for an additional form of muscle and cardiopulmonary physical therapy and may be used to induce health benefits in populations with paralysis, and in persons with musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and renal pathology. Expand

Effects of functional electrical stimulation (FES) on evoked muscular output in paraplegic quadriceps muscle
TLDR
The peak torque was not found to be of the same muscle length when comparing paraplegics and control subjects; it seemed to demonstrate that length-tension relationship of the muscular actuator was changing when it was electrically activated. Expand
In vivo 31P NMR studies of paraplegics' muscles activated by functional electrical stimulation
TLDR
The bioenergetics of paralyzed muscles of spastic paraplegic patients under functional electrical stimulation (FES) was studied in vivo using 31P NMR to detect metabolic and mechanical irreversible damage in paraplegics' muscles activated by FES. Expand
Functional electrical stimulation (FES): muscle histochemical analysis
TLDR
The results showed that the sizes of the three types of fibres were not modified with the use of FES; the number of type IIa fibres increased in a significant fashion, after using of Fes. Expand
Funktionelle Elektrostimulation querschnittgelähmter Patienten - 1 Jahr praktische Anwendung
In October 1982 two patients suffering from paraplegia ware, world wide for the first time, implanted two 8-channel-stimulation-devices at the II. Surgical Clinics Vienna. Four electrodes were fixedExpand
Muscle and bone in paraplegic patients, and the effect of functional electrical stimulation.
TLDR
Four paraplegic men volunteered for an exercise programme in which their paralysed quadriceps muscles were stimulated by means of computer-regulated electrical impulses applied through external electrodes, which resulted in no changes in bone mineral content or bone density during the exercise period.

Electrophysiological orthosis for the upper extremity in hemiplegia: feasibility study.
TLDR
It is concluded that a more extensive clinical evaluation program including regular long term training of the subjects is justified for the functional rehabilitation of hemiplegic subjects. Expand
A clinical exercise system for paraplegics using functional electrical stimulation
TLDR
Results showed that a programme of stimulation induced lower limb exercise increased the exercise tolerance of all patients, as determined by a progressive increase in exercise time, cycling rate and exercise load. Expand
Clinical evaluation of computerized functional electrical stimulation after spinal cord injury: a multicenter pilot study.
TLDR
Results indicate that this form of FES is safe, that quadriceps strength and endurance is increased, that endurance for ergometer pedaling is increased and that there may be a training effect as more work is done at a similar heart rate and systolic blood pressure and as muscle bulk is increased.

Transcutaneous muscle stimulation to retard disuse atrophy after open meniscectomy.
TLDR
Transcutaneous electrical stimulation may prevent muscle atrophy due to immobilization, thereby shortening rehabilitation time, and reduce postoperative knee swelling and pain medication. Expand
Effects of nerve stimulation on human muscle.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the physical conditions of contraction may be more important than the pattern of neuronal discharge in determining the metabolic profile of human muscle fibers. Expand
