The Immediate Effect of Electrical Stimulation Transcranial Direct Current (tDCS) Associated With the Use of FES, in Muscle Activity of the Tibialis Anterior Muscle, Balance and Plantar Pressure Distribution of Individuals With Hemiparesis Due to Stroke


Phase 1/2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Background: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is currently considered a beneficial method for patients with neurological problems due to the modulation of cortex activity as well as the enhancement and prolongation of functional gains achieved during physical therapy. Purpose: The aim of the proposed study is to evaluate the immediate effects of a session of tDCS over the primary motor cortex...
