Restorative Therapies in Action

For over 40 years, scientists have been conducting intensive research about FES or the elicitation of coordinated muscle contraction through the stimulation of peripheral nerves. The results have led to thousands of articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

This research demonstrates the benefits of FES therapy and the restoration of movement, even if involuntary. Such activity can:

  • Reverse the effects of muscle disuse atrophy
  • Alleviate the secondary complications associated with a sedentary lifestyle caused by immobility
  • Improve quality of life

“Keeping active can...lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and certain cancers, as well as reduce stress and boost mood. Inactive (sedentary) lifestyles do just the opposite.” –Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 20 Oct. 2012. Web. 08 Dec. 2015.
