Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) bike by Restorative Therapies applies small electrical pulses to paralyzed muscles to restore or improve their function.
Low-level electrical pulses are transmitted through surface electrodes to the leg muscles. This causes coordinated contractions and the pedaling motion.
This 12 CHANNEL system has the ability to engage 12 different muscle groups at the same time. Muscle groups that can be stimulated include quadriceps, hamstring, glutel, gastrocnemius, abdominal, and erector spinae.
Practically brand new with only 28 hours of use, this FES bike has the ability to build muscle, strengthen skin, strengthen the cardiovascular system, assist with breathing, help with standing, help with transfers, and improve bladder and bowel function. There’s even evidence that FES may reduce the frequency of pressure sores and urinary tract infections.
