“…Although some studies have demonstrated the effects of electrical stimulation reducing spasticity, 8 some others did not compare their findings with other therapeutic interventions. 13,30,31 The Barthel Index is frequently used to evaluate the functional independence of neurological patients.…”

“…2 In the therapeutic rehabilitation arsenal for individuals with stroke sequelae, functional electrical stimulation (FES) has stood out recently. Functional Electrical Stimulation consists of an electrical current that provokes action potentials in the motor nerve, 3 and may cause strengthening, decrease in spasticity (by reciprocal inhibition), and muscular relaxation, depending on the frequency used and on other parameters (pulse width, time on/off, and area stimulated).…”

“…3 The parameters normally used in producing scientific articles are: frequency of 20 to 100 hz, amplitude of 14 to 60 mA, and pulse width of 200 to 300 μs. 3 For muscle strength and muscle tone, there is strong evidence of positive effects, emphasizing that, for the effect of diminishing tone, this is limited to patients with active wrist extension greater than 20° before intervention.As for the range of active movement (ROM) and in the group of patients with active extension between 10° and 20°, there were no significant gains. 3 The duration of the interventions varies on average from 10 to 15 sessions.…”
