After a stroke, patients may no longer be able to correctly perform simple everyday movements, such as drinking from a glass.
Drinking is still realized as a task, but the impulse sent to the brain is not sufficient to trigger the proper movement.
This process can be practiced with functional electrical stimulation to improve motion sequences on a long-term basis.
The EMG function of the STIWELL electrostimulator measures and enhances the patient’s motion impulse to enable successful movement. Multi-channel electrical impulses support motion control.
For more than 20 years STIWELL has leased and sold electrostimulation devices to provide comprehensive therapy after stroke and other neurological diseases. For more information please visit http://www.stiwell.com/
