You may have heard of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) for drop foot but research shows FES may also be helpful for constipation.
Thanks to a grant from the Morrisons Foundation we will be trialling a new abdominal FES service at the Centre.
The initial trial will be for six weeks and will be carried out independently at home using a FES machine called a Microstem. It will involve placing electrodes on your tummy for 30 minutes twice a day.
Is constipation a problem for you? Would you like to try our service? If you are interested in finding out more please contact Henriette or call her on 0118 901 6000.
