Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

For clients with spinal-cord injury (SCI), OTs commonly apply electrical stimulation (ES) to facilitate upper-extremity activities. However, ES is inconsistently implemented in the clinic. In response to this practice gap, the current study conducted focus groups with senior OTs having experience using ES for clients with SCI. The goal was to establish a detailed outline for a thorough, clinician-friendly guide for using ES with the SCI population.
