At Fourier Intelligence, we do not believe these people are fated to sit on the wheelchair in their rest life. To let them stand up, and to allow them to walk again, we started to develop a genuinely new exoskeleton products- The Fourier X1
Functional Electrical Stimulation by Berkel Bikes.
Electrodes integrated into a pair of cycling pants or applied to the skin of the user send electric impulses to the different muscle groups of legs and buttocks. A sensor at the front wheel of the bike transmits the current pedal position to the FES computer. The computer then coordinates which muscles have to be stimulated at what time to generate a cycling motion.
In general, most people with spinal cord injury who have a spastic paralysis can use the BerkelBike FES-Box. If you are paralyzed but don’t have any spasms, the RISE Stimulator may be the right choice for you. There are cases, where also people with multiple sclerosis can benefit from the functional electrical stimulation.
The BerkelBike FES-Box can also be used as a stand-alone stimulator, for instance, to stimulate abdominal or back muscles while lying in your bed.

Sarah Abrusley discusses her recovery from a 2007 stroke and how Botox injections have relaxed the muscle tone and spasticity she was suffering in her left arm and hand. She is under the care of Dr. Andrea Toomer of Culicchia Neurological Clinic in New Orleans.
In this stroke recovery exercise Lora places her affected hand on top of the ball. She then spread her fingers as far apart from each other as she can and holds them in place with her unaffected hand. She then rocks the ball back and forth.
This patient demonstrates finger and wrist spasticity. She has trouble pinching and opening her hand, though she has relatively good motor control.

He thought the rubber hand was his own hand, after getting his real and rubber hand stroked simultaneously.
He pulled his own hand away, when the rubber hand gets hit by a fork! 🙂
