Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is an evidenced-based approach to the training of functional movements. A lack of knowledge and hands-on training in FES is a key barrier to its use in neurorehabilitation practice. This course will help clinicians: 1) understand the different electrical stimulation parameters and how each affects the neurophysiological response; 2) effectively manipulate stimulation parameters; and 3) apply one- and two-channel surface FES to the upper and lower extremities of adults and children with upper motor neuron lesions. This course is relevant to physical and occupational therapists, therapy assistants, physicians and nurses, as well as researchers with an interest in the clinical applications of FES.


  1. Upon completion, participants will be able to understand the different electrical stimulation parameters and how each affects the neurophysiological response.
  2. Upon completion, participants will be able to effectively manipulate stimulation parameters to achieve the desired neurophysiological response.
  3. Upon completion, participants will be able to apply one- and two-channel FES appropriately to the upper and lower extremities of adults and children with upper motor neuron lesions.

The Spring Meeting is host to the ACRM Training Institute, providing rehabilitation researchers and clinicians seeking CME/CEUs with exciting opportunities for in-depth training and the translation of evidence-based knowledge into clinical practice for rehabilitation clinicians and researchers

Choose from ten courses and earn a Certificate of Attendance and/or up to 20 contact hours of Continuing Education credit in your choice of 13 disciplines via the 2020 Annual Conference Pre-recorded Sessions.

The ACRM Spring Meeting is also a venue for networking and collaborating within the ACRM interdisciplinary community groups and committees. Come find your tribe, contribute to the field, and become a member of this vibrant and welcoming community. These groups are the heart of ACRM, working to IMPROVE LIVES through rehabilitation research.

PRO members may join community group meetings free-of-charge and learn how to get involved — to help get the research into practice faster and move the rehabilitation field forward.

ACRM Training Institute provides 2 days of Continuing Education with CME/CEUs
