Abstract

In two T7 and a T8 level spinal cord injured paraplegic patients, upright postures were restored by FES. The desirable standing postures was attained which was determined from a link and also determined from normal upright postures. In two patients, practical standings without any bracing was obtained. The weight bearing by lower extremity were 100% of the body weight and single hand standing were attained. The maximal standing durations were both 30 minutes.
