CYCLING WITH YOUR OWN MUSCLES, DESPITE A CONDITION

Training with Functional Electrical Stimulation

Training with functional electrical stimulation has lots of positive effects on a person’s wellbeing. As the muscles are reactivated, blood circulation increases. This improves metabolism. Body temperature, especially in the legs, will also increase.

It can be difficult for people with paralysis to train their legs. Therefore, these individuals have fewer muscles (or none) left, which can result in decubitus.

Functional electrical stimulation prevents this by exercising with your own muscles in order to grow strong buttocks again. Furthermore, users indicate that they suffer less from spasms after training with FES.
