Peripheral nerve lesion / flaccid paralysis – there is a novel therapeutic option:
Appropriate FES provides maintenance of muscles and reduces risk of decubitus ulcer
Workshop Description: ½ Day
The workshop is designed as a hands-on workshop with a comprehensive introduction on physiological, clinical and technical basics, safety issues, handling of equipment and guidelines for supervised home based therapy. As FES of denervated muscles differs fundamentally from classical neuromuscular FES the main particularities are addressed in an open interactive discussion. The goal is to train qualified medical staff to a level that allows confident, safe and efficient clinical application of this novel method, and providing them a clear view on achievable therapeutic benefits, limitations and potential specific risks.
Minimum number of attendees: 20
