Plentz1,2 Abstract Background: Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a rehabilitation method that can revert alterations provoked by aging, such as reductions in functional capacity and modifications on blood pressure variability (BPV).
Objectives: To evaluate the training effects of FES on functional capacity and BPV in a centenarian woman.
Methods: A 101-year-old woman without previous disease underwent FES training for 12 weeks, with three 40 min sessions-week.
FES was applied at a frequency of 20 Hz with a 0.5 ms pulse, 5 s contraction time, 10 s relaxation time, the maximum t...
