Gait Training For Acute Stroke: Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation (FNS) and Weight Supported Treadmill Training


Phase 4 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Conventional rehabilitation does not restore normal, safe gait to many stroke survivors. Functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) using intramuscular (IM) electrodes (FNS-IM) improved persistent gait deficits for patients with chronic stroke (1-7 years post stroke), but required a long protocol of 6-18 months. For chronic deficits, a shortened response to treatment (3 months) was obtained by combining FNS-IM...
