Annual FESAiR Conference in Vancouver

FESairLOGO 

David Monceaux presented at the annual FESAIR Conference, in Vancouver, BC, to an international team of Medical Professionals. David shared his practical experiences using MOTOmed/Hasomed's FES Cycling as a Home and Clinical Therapy program. Tracie Entler, a C5-C7 quadriplegia, was the featured case in his presentation. Objectives were documented and outcomes were followed for four months. The inluded reduction of spasticity, build muscle mass of gluteal to reduce pressures under ischial tuberosity, controlling edemia, increasing blood circulation, rebuilding muscle tone, and improving overall quality of life.

 

The experiences were very successful. Within the two months substantial reduction in edemia was documented. Muscle tone increased and blood pressure stabilized in resting and cycling confirming FES Cycling improves overall quality of life. Using Xsensor pressure mapping technology we showed a reduction of pressure forces on the Ischial Tuberosity after two months of stimulating the gluteal maximus with Hasomed FES in sequence mode which allow unit to be used in freestanding.

 

We are so encouraged by our findings we decided to continue the study with Tracie. David will be adding dynamic standing in conjunction with FES Cycling to create a Well Being Program. Our bodies are designed to move and stand. Many medical complications come in to play when these functions don't occur.
