New FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) Cycle has arrived
We’re excited to announce that a brand new Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) cycle has arrived! This advanced machine will offer superior functionality and improved therapeutic and rehabilitation benefits compared to the old machine. With its state-of-the-art technology, this machine will provide you with a better experience than ever before. The new FES cycle will revolutionize rehabilitation and therapy, delivering superior benefits to your health and wellbeing.
The FES cycle works through activating nerves to provide high intensity muscle contractions. Stimulation pads are placed over weak or paralysed muscle groups in arms, legs and core to yield high intensity muscle activation.
The benefits of this therapy are
- Increased muscle mass and strength
- Improved circulation
- Improved cardiovascular endurance
- Improved joint mobility
- Reduced spasticity and hypertonicity
- Promotes neuroplasticity
- Assists in functional recovery
- Reduced muscle atrophy
- Increased respiration
- Decreased expensive secondary medical conditions and costs associated with re-hospitalization and long-term care in hospitals and/or skilled nursing facilities
We are incredibly grateful to our generous supporters who made the purchase of the $75,000 FES bike possible. Through the CEO Challenge, grants, and other fundraising initiatives, we were able to raise funds to finance the FES bike. This would not have been possible without the support and dedication of our incredible donors.
