Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is multi-pad system that allows fast optimization of stimulation patterns for achieving strong dorsiflexion/plantar flexion and automatic real-time ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of cycling functional electrical stimulation applied to the lower extremities of children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy (CP) on ...
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) had systemic repercussion and lead to peripheral muscular dysfunction. Muscular atrophy limits aerobic capacity and is a major limitation of da...
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of conventional speech therapy associated with functional electrical stimulation in patients with dysphagia after ischemic stroke. Included patie...
The overall objective of this research project is to examine the clinical efficacy of lower extremity cycling with functional electrical stimulation to improve the health and fitness of ch...
Exercise training has been shown to be beneficial for persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Adapted exercise modalities are needed to accommodate those with severe mobility impairment (Expanded Disabi...
Functional electrical stimulation (FES)-cycling is a technique used to provide voluntary muscle contraction during a functional task. The aims were primarily to determine the effects of FES-cycling on...
Investigation of muscle fatigue during functional electrical stimulation (FES)-evoked exercise in individuals with spinal cord injury using dynamometry has limited capability to characterize the fatig...
Exercise capacity is reduced in chronic kidney failure (CKF). Intra-dialytic cycling is beneficial, but comorbidity and fatigue can prevent this type of training. Low-frequency electrical muscle stimu...
Musculoskeletal modelling has been used to predict the effect of functional electrical stimulation (FES) on the mechanics of the musculoskeletal system. However, validation of the resulting muscle act...
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
A set of opposing, nonequilibrium reactions catalyzed by different enzymes which act simultaneously, with at least one of the reactions driven by ATP hydrolysis. The results of the cycle are that ATP energy is depleted, heat is produced and no net substrate-to-product conversion is achieved. Examples of substrate cycling are cycling of gluconeogenesis and glycolysis pathways and cycling of the triglycerides and fatty acid pathways. Rates of substrate cycling may be increased many-fold in association with hypermetabolic states resulting from severe burns, cold exposure, hyperthyroidism, or acute exercise.
A technique in assisted reproduction (REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, ASSISTED) consisting of hormonal stimulation of the ovaries, follicular aspiration of preovulatory oocytes, in-vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes at the pronuclear stage (before cleavage).
A measure of the functional capabilities of the heart, lungs and muscles, relative to the demands of specific exercise routines such as running or cycling.
Therapy assisted by the use of a horse and/or its movement, including equine-assisted psychotherapy, horseback riding, and hippotherapy.
