Walking on an uneven surface: the effect of common peroneal stimulation on gait parameters and relationship between perceived and measured benefits in a sample of participants with a drop foot (Journal abstract)

Tue 12th Jun, 2007

A study in stroke (CVA) and MS patients that looked at the effect the ODFS had on walking over rough ground simulated by placing obstacles under a 10m strip of carpet.  Walking speed and effort as measured by physiological cost index (PCI) improved when the functional electrical stimulation was used.  This improvement was proportionally bigger over rough ground than smooth ground.  Patients perceived benefit from the FES correlated with PCI but not walking speed.
