The benefits of a functional electrical stimulation (FES) gait programme were assessed in a group of 6 incomplete spinal cord injured subjects. Measurements were made of quadriceps spasticity, lower limb muscle strength, postural stability in standing, spatial and temporal values of gait, physiological cost of gait and independence in activities of daily living. The subjects were assessed before commencement of the programme and after a period of gait training using FES. The benefits derived as… CONTINUE READING
