Functional Electrical Stimulation Bike Race

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a technology that uses electrical pulses to excite skeletal muscles that are paralysed due to an injury to the central nervous system. Regular FES cycling exercise after SCI has been shown to lead to beneficial physiological adaptations such as improvements in bone density, an increase in muscle mass, and improved cardiovascular and respiratory fitness. Besides the application of FES cycling in rehabilitation, it can be of high recreational value to people with SCI.
