FUNCTIONAL ELECTRICAL STIMULATION ASSISTED CYCLING (ESTIMCYCLE):A NOVEL INTERVENTION TO IMPROVE OUTCOMES IN THE CRITICALLY ILL
Grant number: 1079460 | Funding period: 2015 - 2019
The legacy of critical illness leaves millions of survivors worldwide with long lasting deficits in physical and brain function as well as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Early rehabilitation may prevent or minimise these effects. This study evaluates the effectiveness of functional electrical stimulation of muscles with assisted in-bed cycling (eStimCycle) on muscle bulk, strength, physical and brain function at hospital discharge, 6 and 12 months.
