How new technologies are helping with health, fitness and lifestyle after a brain or spinal cord injury

FES Cycling Solutions

A well-established active therapy rehabilitation technique

  • Active therapy allows muscles to work the way they are meant to
  • Reverses muscle atrophy
  • Uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate nerves

Active therapy allows muscles to do the work they are meant to and reverse muscle atrophy. This is superior to passive therapy, where muscles don’t do any of the work.

FES is a well-established active therapy rehabilitation technique that uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves, generating muscle contractions and patterned muscle activity.

Our FES solutions are focused on weak and paralysed muscles in the arms, legs and trunk, enabling muscles to work and perform activities. Allowing them to become more conditioned and patients to reach their rehabilitation goals.
