  • FES and CP

    This is posted as an inquiry on behalf of my son who has CP, cerebral palsy.
    Is there anyone out there doing research on compensatory FES for patients
    such as those with CP? CP causes the nerve stimuli to fire too often as
    opposed to those with cord injuries who need to have the stimuli generated
    for them. This might prove to be an interesting project for anyone in this
    field, i.e. the use of compensatory stimuli to balance out the excessive
    stimuli being generated by the CP patient. Any and all replies are
    appreciated and will be responded to in hopes of finding out if such research
    is being done. Thank you in advance. Sharon Kagan
