Functional Electric Stimulation (FES)
A Functional Electric Stimulation unit stimulates nerves and muscles to give the patient more natural movement and stability. It is often used for patients with stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and brain or spinal cord injuries. It re-educates muscles to reduce muscle loss, increase local blood circulation and maintain or improve a range of motion.
With advanced technologies, Sunshine Prosthetics and Orthotics will make sure each FES patient is fitted with the most suitable device for his/her needs. Each unit is custom-programmed for the patient.
