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.
