PhysioFunction are recognised as international experts in the use of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). We ensure our clients receive the most clinically correct rehabilitation technology suited to their needs. Jon Graham, Clinical Director at PhysioFunction talks about Foot Drop and Functional Electrical Stimulation.
How Does It Work? What’s It Used For? A Brief Introduction.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is an analytical technique used in quality control and research for determining the content and purity of a sample as well as its molecular structure. It uses magnetic fields and electro-magnetic frequencies to determine the structure and composition of molecules. NMR can be used to study simple molecular structures like water (H20) or carbon dioxide (CO2) or more complex structures like proteins.
For example, NMR can quantitatively analyze mixtures containing known compounds.
For unknown compounds, NMR can either be used to match against spectral libraries or to infer the basic structure directly. Once the basic structure is known, NMR can be used to determine molecular conformation in solution as well as studying physical properties at the molecular level such as conformational exchange, phase changes, solubility, and diffusion.
NMR is unique in that it is non-destructive, meaning it won’t destroy the sample in the process of analyzing it. NMR also provides detailed information on dynamic processes like protein-protein interactions or binding and chemical reactions as they happen.

Dr. Karen J. Nolan discusses current uses of robotics for stroke rehabilitation. She discusses how we can re-train the biomechanics of our body.
Karen J. Nolan, PhD is a Senior Research Scientist in the Human Performance and Engineering at Kessler Foundation, Associate Professor of PM&R at Rutgers NJMS, Clinical Research Scientist at Children’s Specialized Hospital, and Affiliated Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Dr. Nolan has extensive experience leading the design and implementation of biomechanical research and strong expertise in balance, gait, movement analysis, neuromuscular physiology, rehabilitation robotics, and peripheral motor control. Dr. Nolan is recognized as a leader in the field of biomechanics and motor rehabilitation and has been invited to give presentations on these topics at national and international conferences.

Hand-wrist orthosis and functional electrical stimulation can be used in association, so that the wrist and the palm of the hand are fixed in an optimal position, while the electrodes stimulate the extrinsic muscles to flex and extend the fingers.
