This weeks article of the week is “Effects of preoperative neuromuscular electrical stimulation on quadriceps strength and functional recovery in total knee arthroplasty. A pilot study”.
This pilot study assessed the compliance and effects of a home based neuromuscular electrical stimulation in patients undergoing knee replacements. The study found that overall compliance of the programme was 99% and preoperative quadricep strength increased by 28%, with gains in walking stair-climbing and sit to stand times. In addition, patients who underwent this training recovered faster from their operation than patients who only completed isometric exercises.
