Multiple Sclerosis FES

In recent Multiple Sclerosis studies, there has been a substantial increase in evidence supporting the use of peroneal nerve functional electrical stimulation (FES) to alleviate drop foot in people with multiple sclerosis.

Though the ankle foot orthosis (AFO) continues to be the standard of care for drop foot caused by multiple sclerosis, there is evidence that the AFO is not always effective for this population.16 Recent studies have investigated the effect of FES on the quality of gait for people with MS. FES is an active approach to treating drop foot and may have advantages over the passive AFO. MS is a condition that responds favorably to FES, and the literature supports that people with MS are excellent candidates.
