Peter says, "Looking for a book recommendation? Try ' The Running Dream."

'The Running Dream' by Wendelin Van Draanen, allows readers to better understand the emotions surrounding a traumatic amputation.

We highly recommend this book to anyone who has an opportunity to work with people who have a physical disability.

Questions for Peter?
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) systems are a newer technology being used as an alternative to AFOs to assist patients with a foot drop.

This video shows how the Walk Aide FES system works and provides real life examples of patients walking with and without the FES system.

The following link provides an overview of Functional Electrical Stimulation, particularly when used for patients with Multiple Sclerosis. FES devices tend to work particularly well in patients with MS. 

Learn more about FES.
