Abstract:
Case study demonstrated the use of electrically induced lower extremity ergometry (EILEE) to facilitate the healing of an ischial pressure ulcer in a man with spinal cord injury (SC). The pressure ulcer had responded slowly and inconsistently to conventional treatment for 23 months. Following the EILEE treatment, the pressure ulcer healed completely in 6.5 months.
