FES

Hi ya

I just wondered if anyone has had any experience with FES (Functional Electronic Stimulation) - I have an appointment this Friday to see if it will be suitable for me. I have footdrop which is quite annoying for me as I love to walk but have a permanent trip hazard with my foot not picking up at times so makes me nervous and I end up becoming quite tense and I feel a little lopsided when walking with the stick. My physio put a referral in for me as I was asking her about it and my GP surgery forwarded it on hence the appointment on Friday. I am cautiously optimistic as if it will help me walk in a more normal fashion and for longer I will be totally made up. Just wondered if any of you have used it before.

A search turns up quite a few posts over the years and should help answer your question.
