The Ness H200 is a muscle stimulation system for hand rehabilitation that can help patients regain the functionality of the hand after a stroke, traumatic brain injury, incomplete spinal cord injury and other neurological pathologies.
Ness H200 consists of two latest-generation components: a light and comfortable orthosis, and a hand control unit. Operation is simple. The orthosis has 5 surface electrodes that fit onto the forearm and hand. The specialist regulates the control unit which sends electrical pulses to the electrodes of the orthosis allowing patients to grasp, pinch and release the fingers and thumb.
The advantage of Ness H200 is that it has seven different programs that allow you to customize rehabilitation depending on the needs of each patient. Besides helping the movement of the wrist and hand, Ness H200 can re-educate the muscles, maintain or increase range of motion, increase blood circulation and prevent muscle atrophy. In this way you get:
• Reduced spasticity
• Increased mobility
• Decreased stiffness
• Decrease of oedema in the hand
• Increase in the involvement of the patient in the manipulative activity that they are carrying out
• Acceleration of the process of rehabilitation of the upper limb thanks to its own over-stimulation
The BIONESS L300 system for foot drop is a revolutionary system that is designed to help people with certain neurological problems to walk more naturally, with more speed, stability and confidence. L300 advanced technology provides low-level programmed electrical stimulation to activate the nerves and muscles that lift the foot, giving people the mobility to return to their previous life.
It serves to assist the patients with paralysis, caused by a cerebrovascular accident, to walk. It assists the flexion and extension of the knee and the dorsiflexion of the ankle using electrostimulation.
A wireless sensor that is installed in the heel senses the moment when the foot hits the ground and synchronizes the stimulation of the muscles to take a step. It will be tested in the clinic itself during a learning period, and after its programming by specialists, and if the result is satisfactory the patient will be able to purchase the device. It is not suitable for all patients and does not solve the whole problem, but improvement is palpable and the comfort of use is evident.
