Benefits of Applying Neuroprosthesis for Improving Reaching and Grasping Functions in Stroke Patients

Completed

Phase 3 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a process that uses low intensity electrical pulses generated by an electric stimulator to create muscle contractions. By contracting muscles in a specific sequence, one can generate various body functions such as grasping, walking, and standing.
