Last month we summarised the systematic review by Kristensen MGH et al. The review concluded that neuromuscular electrical stimulation improved activities of daily living but had little impact on functional motor performance after stroke compared to a sham or no electrical stimulation comparators.
Some suggestions for using neuromuscular electrical stimulation with adults following stroke are included in this infographic.
