The ISIS TFS 290 is an advanced development in neuromuscular electrical stimulation for clinic or home use. The programs mimic the natural nerve-muscle communication associated with facial muscle control. With its simple push-button controls, it is especially easy to use at home.
All forms of palsy respond to trophic stimulation. Daily sessions of one hour are typical for accute and sub-accute conditions. Chronic cases of more than 12 months post onset require longer stimulation times of 3 hours or overnight. Unlike other dedicated electrical stimulators, the TFS 290 incorporates both automatic sequential and manual single frequency selection modes; this enables the therapist to more effectively treat and target specific symptoms.
Basic Model - Palsy treatment only -
In PALSY and SYNKINESIS MODES, the muscle is activated through a series of different levels of metabolic activity.
In MANUAL MODES, the therapist may select the stimulation frequency according to the muscle tone as rehabilitation proceeds.
The detailed instruction manual includes recommended treatment progressions and electrode placement diagrams.
