Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)
FES and the H200
We provide Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) for the upper extremity using the NESS H200™ in both the outpatient and inpatient Neurologic and Spinal Cord Occupational Therapy programs.
Using breakthrough technology, the H200™ provides a means to treat upper extremity deficits from a variety of conditions including stroke, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. After completing a thorough patient evaluation, the occupational therapist determines if using the H200™ will help the patient meet his or her therapy goals.
