Hand dexterity rehabilitation using selective functional electrical stimulation in a person with stroke


We report a 69 year old who suffered a cardioembolic ischaemic stroke on 23 September 2019, which resulted in a left hemiplegia with motor impairment in upper and lower extremities that made impossible for her to use the affected arm in daily living activities. The person commenced her comprehensive physiotherapy programme based on functional electrical stimulation (FES) in Fesia Clinic rehabilitation centre in October 2020. A multifield technology-based FES device was used, which allowed to train different selective movements in isolation and combined with mirror therapy, achieving excellent functional outcomes.
