Hi
A friend of mine uses them too. She's very happy with them but she was in a course to learn to use them proberly. did you know that? I just checked online and there are masses of places where you can learn the use of the FES.

how ever as far as i can tell they dont give you back your mobility in the sense of restoring it. you need to use the FES to get the effect, when you stop it, you'll lose the effect too but you can restart anytime. naw, dont know how to explain it proberly but i hope you get it anyway icon_lol.gif
Greetings,
