FES Demo

Post by monkeybus » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:43 am

Hello folks,

I'll pad out this post in a while, but have a look at these vids:

Here is one to assist walking.




Another to show FES to practice dorsiflexion while you basically do nothing.



I use FES to aid dorsiflexion a lot. You can to. All you need is a FES box. I'll post up links soon.



Peace

That’s really interesting, so do you just sit with your FES on and press the buttons? I guess it’s giving your muscles a workout. I’m going to try that. Thanks 😊

Yes, that's exactly what I do. Just sit on the floor, watching YouTube as my muscles work out.

I set a timer on my machine, it fires up every minute. The hardest part is finding the correct location to place the electrodes.

I'll post up more info in a bit. Electrode placement, frequency, amplitude, etc.

FES works, people pay a lot of money to ride FES bikes. Great stuff. I'll be back soon.

Thanks, your FES sounds it bit more hi-tech than mine, I can’t set a timer. Mine is pretty basic it’s NHS issue, I’m not complaining, it’s great for me.
