Functional electric stimulation (FES)

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) uses small electrical signals to stimulate the nerves, causing the muscles to contract and produce a movement. FES can improve muscle mass and strength, spasticity, passive range of motion, upper and lower extremity function, and standing/walking abilities. When placed on multiple muscles that work together in function, the child will motor learn this movement when practiced over time.
