STIWELL med4


Functional electrotherapy promotes the rehabilitation of motor functions following a stroke or after damages to the central nervous system e.g. incomplete paraplegia. Here, STIWELL med4 can offer unique improvements: The processing of myoelectric signals with four independently adjustable stimulation channels and two measurement channels open up a very broad field of application ranging from neurological indications to incontinence therapy. The multi-channel control also allows the stimulation of complex movement sequences.

The therapy goal, namely to restore lost mobility and autonomy, is accelerated with the use of biofeedback functions. These are based on the ability of the human brain to recreate structures in non-damaged areas that are no longer available in the damaged areas. Of crucial importance during the targeted training is the link of technical movement stimulation and deliberate movement intention.

The latter is recognized as a myoelectric muscle potential of the to-be-trained muscle. Patients receive feedback visually or auditory. Moreover, STIWELL med4 can recognize muscle activities which the patient had adopted as a means to compensate for lost functions yet which hinder the restoration of the original functionality. This feature for excluding compensatory movements during training furthermore contributes to the efficiency of STIWELL med4. Finally, STIWELL med4 is user-friendly and intuitive to operate. For its use at home, patients require only a simple therapeutic introduction.
