FES Ergometer Comes to Gottsche in Cody, WY!

Dear Clinicians and Community Members,

We at Gottsche are excited to announce we have been awarded a Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation 1st Cycle 2012 Quality of Life Grant for our physical therapy/occupational therapy to support a Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Ergometer!

This FES ergometer will allow our patients to perform therapeutic exercise assisted by the use of electrical stimulation to their legs to control a smooth reciprocal cycling motion.

FES Ergometery is not just for patients recovering from spinal cord injury.  It will benefit any patient in treatment for neurological impairments by relaxing muscle spasms, preventing muscle disuse atrophy, increasing local blood circulation, and maintaining or increasing range of motion.

Potential Benefits: 

  • Prevent muscle atrophy
  • Relax muscle spasms
  • Improve circulation
  • Increase ROM
  • May promote bowel and bladder function
  • Increase muscle bulk and protect from pressure areas/sores.
Who Can Benefit? 
  • Children and adults
  • All persons with incomplete and complete spinal cord injury
  • Persons with brain injuries
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Stroke, Hemiplegia
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Transverse Myelitis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • HSP
We are excited to enhance the quality of care we are able to deliver to the community with the RT300 Leg Ergometer from Restorative Therapies..  For more information and testimonials regarding the dramatic life changes FES ergometry can make, please visit the Restorative Therapies website (link below), and read their testimonials

We are holding an informational seminar at Gottsche Rehabilitation and Wellness in Cody, WY on July 27th at 12:00 PM Noon to learn more about FES ergometry and how it can benefit you or your loved ones.  Lunch will be provided!  You may stay longer (from 1 - 2pm) to observe patient use of the FES ergometer.  Please let us know you are coming by calling Kathy at (307) 587 -1970.
