Functional Electrical Stimulation in Neurorehabilitation: Synergy Effects of Technology and Therapy (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Thomas Schick
This book explains to physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, interested physicians and clinicians the theoretical and practical applications of single- to multi-channel functional electrical stimulation for a wide range of neurological symptoms. The targeted electrical stimulation of several muscle groups, timed to each other, can initiate and support a complete movement sequence and thus improve motor learning. Renowned experts from research and practice have compiled numerous application examples based on the available evidence in this comprehensive form for the first time. In addition, the reader will find exciting and informative contributions to the current study situation and effectiveness analyses.
The text is enriched by videos on EMG-triggered functional multichannel electrical stimulation, stimulation of muscle groups in lower motor neuron lesions, and FES therapy approaches for dysarthria and swallowing disorders.
From the contents: – FES in lesions of the upper motoneuron, lesion of the lower motoneuron and mixed forms – Combination of FES with mirror therapy and botulinum toxin – Motor learning, neuroplasticity, ICF-based goal setting and the use in home-based therapy – Basic principles, current parameters and their implications – FES in rehabilitation of facial paralysis, unilateral vocal fold paralysis, dysarthria and dysphagia, and neuro-urological deficits
