What is “FES on the Fly”? Essentially an application of therapeutic NMES or FES as a precursor to an activity, such as walking. For example, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) can be used to:
The accompanying picture shows therapeutic stimulation to the tibialis anterior muscle for ankle ROM and motor facilitation.
Therapeutic stimulation can be provided for 15-30 minutes using current ramping and rest periods appropriate for the specific intervention.
NMES can be a valuable pre- gait intervention as it provides the treatment dosage & intensity necessary to address muscle atrophy & facilitate motor recovery in neurologic and orthopaedic rehabilitation.
