CYCLING WITH YOUR OWN MUSCLES, DESPITE A CONDITION

Training with Functional Electrical Stimulation

Training with functional electrical stimulation has many positive effects on a person’s wellbeing. As the muscles are reactivated, the blood circulation increases, which improves metabolism. The 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 left, which can result in painful pressure sores.
