Course Overview:

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a valuable therapeutic tool for the restoration and retraining of voluntary motor function, and is commonly used in the treatment of patients with spinal cord injury, stroke, and multiple sclerosis. Physical therapists and occupational therapists will benefit from the evidence-based, clinically focused approach to FES provided in this course, which includes six weeks of online instruction comprised of pre-recorded lectures, live webinars, self-directed hands-on activities, additional readings, and online quizzes. The course is designed for therapists based nationally and internationally to advance their knowledge and practice in the use of FES. Participants can expect to spend 4-6 hours per week on course activities.
