NMES – NEUROMUSCULAR ELECTRICAL STIMULATION
Description of methodsElectrical muscle stimulation is an internationally well-established clinical physiotherapy treatment in fields like orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation. Applied to central or partial peripheral nerve damage, electrical stimulation can create motor responses in patients with reduced or lost capacity for voluntary muscular activity. The method is a complement to other physiotherapy, and should be combined with active training of mobility, strength, coordination and functional training. The method is simple and suited for clinic-based treatments and self-treatment at home.
