Abstract Objective: To discuss functional electric stimulation (FES) gait training of upper motoneuron spinal cord injured complete paraplegics considering ambulation performance, physiologic and metabolic responses as well as psychologic outcome, while providing myologic insight into ambulation via FES when training starts many years post-injury. Methods: Transcutaneous FES using the Parastep stimulation system, gait training methods with and without major emphasis on muscle reinforcement… Expand
