ETMS Therapy for STROKE and Spinal Cord Injury

As the leading cause of long-term disability, many stroke survivors are living with its debilitating effects. To help stroke victims reach their goals, the NeuroMove™ is designed to increase functionality by teaching healthy parts of the brain to take over from injured areas. It uses state-of-the-art, barrier-breaking techniques in the battle for recovery. The technique has achieved success in 90% of cases for achieving significant functional improvement.

IMAGINATION is behind the NM900™

The NeuroMove uses the patient’s powers of concentration and imagination to help relearn muscle movements which have been lost. The plasticity of the brain is a powerful characteristic for producing progress.

EMG Triggered Neuromuscular Stimulation (ETMS)

The NM900 uses three sensors. Once in place, the electrodes detect electrical signals sent from the brain to nerves inside the muscle. This electromyography (EMG) activity registers on the NeuroMove’s display screen. The less activity there is in a muscle, the harder it is to move that muscle.

Increasing the electrical activity requires reteaching the brain to send messages to the affected muscle. This is where nerve plasticity, imagination and concentration help out to produce the required cortical reorganization. By simply thinking about moving a muscle, a person raises the electrical activity present in that muscle. NeuroMove detects attempts even below the level where trace movements are visible. This is very motivating where there had previously been no movement.

The computer inside the NM900 evaluates the amount of activity present in the muscle, then sets a higher standard that the patient should try to reach by concentration. Upon reaching this mark (threshold) the patient is rewarded with electrical stimulation that makes the muscle move for a few seconds. Success is measured in the actual movement of a hand, arm, etc. and gives the patient greater control over the extremity.
