Dr. Schils developed FES for use for equine athletes

Sheila Schils, Ph.D. M.S., an innovator in the field of equine rehabilitation, a member of the team of professionals at Wellington Equine Sports Medicine and the president of Equinew.  
Dr. Schils developed the use of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) in horses for injury rehabilitation and prevention. 
 
During her more than 20 years on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Schils was a professor in the pre-vet program, where she taught courses in equine health, management, biomechanics and kinesiology. Her education includes a Ph.D. in biomechanics/kinesiology and a master's degree in animal science with an emphasis in equine nutrition. She spent a year performing research with the International Equine Biomechanics Team in Sweden, focusing on evaluating the biomechanics of the horse when dealing with injury and recovery.
 
Dr. Schils is an author on the topic of equine rehabilitation and recently published, "Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) for Equine Muscle Hypertonicity: Histological Changes in Mitochondrial Density and Distribution" in the Journal of Equine Veterinary Science
 
Dr. Schils' background in research and education is coupled with many years of riding and training horses and riders. Her expertise in the field of physical therapy is supported by her practical experience working with horses and riders on a day-to-day basis. To develop her riding skills, she has worked with leading trainers, including a year spent in Sweden riding for Eric Lette, the International FEI Chair of Dressage. An FEI dressage rider, Dr. Schils feels it is essential for the practitioner to understand the details of the sport from a rider's perspective, especially when setting up a physical therapy retraining protocol.
