FES and NMES (electrical stimulation devices)

NICE guidance urges health professionals to embrace the use of this very effective technology that can help improve walking ability and balance in clients with muscle weakness. Many professionals do not have the expertise to offer this service nor the knowledge to guide clients in the right direction. I have used EMG triggered stimulation as well as, FES and neuro muscular electrical stimulation devices from various manufacturers for a long time.

I have undergone training at University of Miami in the use of EMG Biofeedback to be used for clients who have arm and leg muscle weakness. I have used this effectively in clients with Brain injury and Stroke.
