Course Description: 

This 2-day course focuses on the basic and intermediate clinical application of electrical stimulation.  The course will use lectures, case studies, participant problem solving, and hands-on practice to reinforce the physiological principles taught to optimize patient outcomes. Participants will learn clinical reasoning skills and gain the confidence to use electrical stimulation safely and effectively as a modality for upper extremity rehabilitation in their daily practice in order to help their patients achieve their functional goals.  Presentations will highlight current evidence, best practice, and client-centered strategies to promote participation.  If you have any questions, please contact Remy at

About the Speakers:

Remy Chu Jr. is the inpatient clinical manager at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center where he manages approximately 30 clinical staff members and oversees the occupational therapy inpatient operations for the following services: Stroke and Neurorehabilitation; Adult Brain Injury; Spinal Cord Injury; Pressure Ulcer Management; and Pediatrics. He has more than 22 years of clinical experience, most notably in stroke, adult brain injury and neurological rehabilitation.

Mr. Chu is regularly consulting, instructing and lecturing nationally on the topics of upper extremity spasticity management, shoulder care, upper extremity motor control, neuromuscular electrical stimulation and fall prevention. In addition to clinical and educational settings, he is also actively involved in research on topics including transcranial magnetic stimulation, microstimulators, stem cells, various pharmacological interventions in rehabilitation and robotic interventions in therapy. Mr. Chu’s skills combine traditional approaches as well as new evidence-based interventions, including the incorporation of transcranial magnetic stimulation and robotic therapy in the rehabilitation of individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities.

Lucinda Baker, PhD, PT, is a retired associate professor of biokinesiology and physical therapy at the University of Southern California. Her research has focused on electrical stimulation for wound healing for patients with spinal cord injury and diabetes, as well as rehabilitation of sensory and motor deficits for patients with stroke and traumatic brain injury.     Dr. Baker is the author of many scientific papers and co-author of the leading book on the subject NeuroMuscular Electrical Stimulation – A Practical Guide.     Research publications:
