MORNING COURSE

Wednesday, 8 OCT // 8:00 PM – 12:00 PM

IC #5) Functional Electrical Stimulation for Gait: A Clinical Update in Neurorehabilitation #1171

Faculty: Michael W. O’Dell, MD, New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, NY; Kari Dunning, PhD, College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH; Keith McBride, DPT, Bioness, Inc., Valencia, CA; Candy Tefertiller, MPT, ATP, NCS, Craig Hospital, Denver, CO

Diagnosis/Area of Practice: STROKE / cross-cutting
Focus: Clinical practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP)
WHO should attend?: Clinicians

This course will provide an update on recent evidence examining the clinical effects of functional electrical stimulation on recovery and gait in persons with stroke, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. The speakers will address various aspects of FES, including its physiological basis, orthotic versus therapeutic effects, and evidence for clinical effectiveness.

Learning Objectives
To support the attainment of knowledge, competence, and performance, the learner should be able to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Discuss the effects of lower extremity functional electrical stimulation on the peripheral and central nervous systems
  2. Outline recent clinical evidence for the effectiveness of FES to enhance gait in persons with selected neurological disease and injury.
  3. Distinguish an orthotic versus a therapeutic effect of FES on gait in persons with neurological disease and injury.

Stephen Page, PhD, FACRM

Diagnosis/Area of Practice: STROKE
Focus: Clinical practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP)
Who should attend?: Clinicians

Stroke remains a leading cause of disability, with stroke induced hemiparesis remaining a primary reason for the disability exhibited by survivors. Mental practice is a noninvasive, easy to use, clinically practical approach shown to significantly reduce affected limb impairment. This course describes the theory, evidence, and clinical application of this technique in people with stroke. Attendees will also learn the outcome measures that are commonly used to optimally measure efficacy and monitor progress.

Learning Objectives
To support the attainment of knowledge, competence, and performance, the learner should be able to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Describe the inclusion criteria that a patient must meet to benefit from mental practice and action observation
  2. Describe and apply outcome measures to measure mental practice and action observation efficacy in stroke patients
  3. Describe the clinical protocols that should be followed to optimize efficacy of mental practice and action observation
