The effects of dermatomal electric stimulation to the finger flexors and extensors in chronic hemiplegia

Abstract

We investigated the clinical effects of dermatomal electric stimulation on reducing spasticity in hemiplegic patients through finger muscle contraction and on hand function. Eleven hemiplegic patients participated in the study. Electric stimulation of the finger flexors’ dermatome (C8) was carried out for one 20-minute session using low intensity… (More)
