There are indications that both intensive exercise and electrical stimulation have a beneficial effect on arm function in post-stroke hemiplegic patients. We recommend the use of Functional Electrical Therapy (FET), which combines electrical stimulation of the paretic arm and intensive voluntary movement of the arm to exercise daily functions. FET was applied 30 min daily for 3 weeks. Forty-one acute hemiplegics volunteered in the 18-months single blinded cross-over study (CoS). Nineteen… CONTINUE READING
