Functional Electric Stimulation (FES)
FES is a technique that uses low energy electrical pulses and has been found to be effective in restoring voluntary functions. These pulses artificially generate body movements in individuals who have been paralysed, due to central nervous system injury.
More specifically, FES can be used to generate muscle contraction in otherwise paralysed limbs. Functions such as grasping, walking, bladder voiding and standing can potentially be improved with FES.
Cyclone offer a range of market-leading FES systems from Restorative Therapies. These are focused on weak and paralysed muscles in the arms, legs and trunk, enabling the muscles to work and perform activities. This allows them to become more conditioned and patients to reach their rehabilitation goals.
