Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is suitable for individuals who suffer from muscle paralysis as a result of injury to the central nervous system. The central nervous system (CNS) is the brain and spinal cord. Examples of neurological conditions which cause muscle weakness and a reduction in mobility as a result of injury to the CNS include: Individuals who have foot drop due to a peripheral nerve injury – for example, a broken leg or ankle may not be appropriate for treatment with FES. This is because the peripheral nerves have been damaged rather than the central nervous system.

At Manchester Physio, our experienced clinicians are able to offer a detailed neurological assessment to determine your suitability for the use of FES. It is important to check that you have sufficient range of movement, good skin integrity and are able to feel and tolerate a light tingling sensation.
