ActiStim is an Advanced Development in Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation for both clinic and home use!
The ActiStimTM trophic stimulation programs mimic the natural nerve-muscle communication associated with muscle control. With its simple push-button controls, it is especially easy to use at home.
The treatment specific stimulator is pre-programmed for a range of conditions that respond to the therapeutic effects of trophic neuromuscular stimulation.
With dual-channel capability the ActiStim is well suited to treating muscles as agonist - agtagonist or bilateral pairs.
The therapist can select any of 21 stored programs to automatically take the muscle through a range of metabolic activity that is optimalfor the condition being treated. There are also 3 programs for pain control.
The detailed instruction manual includes recommended treatment progressions and electrode placement diagrams.
Recommended for the Treatment of Neuromuscular Dysfunction related to:Facial Paralysis, Bell's Palsy, Arthritis, Stroke, Syskinesis and Chronic Pain.
