Functional Electronic Stimulation Pilot (FES)
The Cleveland Center for Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary program involving over 100 scientists, engineers, clinicians and trainees from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and School of Engineering, MetroHealth Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic and the Cleveland VA Medical Center. Their mission is to investigate the fundamental aspects of electrical excitation in the CNS, develop implantable technologies for clinical uses, and perform clinical trials to restore function in individuals with spinal cord injuries, stroke, multiple sclerosis and amputation. The FES Center and CTSC have a long-standing partnership that includes collaborative research projects between the FES Center investigators and CTSC clinicians. The FES Center partners with the CTSC Pilot Program offering themed pilots to stimulate FES research.
