Hi what is FES please.x
Yes, very much so. I had a FES machine for my weak leg and it helped with walking. Unfortunately, I had an allergic skin reaction. I now wear an ankle support. Please be aware not all health authorities fund FES.

I have a tens machine not sure if it makesvmy shoulder/arm worse or not?
Welcome to the forum. I can’t help with your question but just wanted to say welcome.
I’m sure someone will be able to help though.
Hi and welcome to this forum. I’m 5 years post stroke and use an FES machine all day, every day. If it works for you the benefits are unbelievable. I would be unable to walk without some form of assistance and this works well for me. Unfortunately I am unable to set it up myself and my husband sets it up for me every morning and it can be very difficult to get right and some days are better than others. It’s a very precise procedure. Fortunately my GP funds my treatment but not all health authorities do this. It’s worth doing some research and looking at all of the options.
Hi Littlebigman-- Yes I had FES every day for 3 weeks when I was in the hospital. I think it helped get my nerve/brain connection. going for my leg/foot and hand/arm. A tens unit can be bought for a reasonable price on the internet. Jeanne
