Physical effects of electrical stimulation

Training with functional electrical stimulation has many positive effects on the body’s condition; muscles are reactivated, the blood circulation will improve and the metabolism will increase. Additionally, body temperature maintenance, especially in the legs, will improve.

Improved circulation

Thanks to better blood circulation, the user’s skin quality will also improve. With injuries to the spinal cord, it can be difficult to train the legs. As a result, many people lose most of their muscle tissue which can cause pressure sores. Fortunately, this can be prevented with FES technology or the RISE stimulator, by training the muscles and reinforcing the backside.

Fewer problems with spasms

By improving your fitness, your immune system will become stronger, so your body can better resist virus-attacks and other pathogens. In addition, there is also a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, whereas a person with reduced mobility is at greater risk. Additionally, users report that they suffer less from muscle spasms due to their training with FES.

The prevention of complications

Regular training can prevent serious complications. The BerkelBike can help train the entire body, even if the user lives with severe constraints. Now there is an opportunity to train more than just the upper body – people with limitations are able to get their whole body back in shape!
