My Child Has a Neurological Impairment
What parents are saying
Consistency is key
Andrew got his own RT300 and he also started using it by himself. Terri says they now average five times a week on the RT300 for 45 minutes each session. Consistency, she believes, is key.
Improved strength and well being
My daughter has used her RT300 for over two years now, and I am as certain as anything that it has made a difference in her functioning. I am certain that the therapy provided by the RT300 has been a significant factor in the delay of her deterioration and her improved strength and well being
I know we can build Sadie's strength
You’re sending a signal to the nerve, telling it to wake up! Wake up! WAKE UP! And eventually, with consistent use, I know we can build Sadie’s strength until she’s using the maximum potential of the RT300 — and then, who knows what could happen?”
It's amazing technology
“It’s amazing technology, the way the computer works with the individual’s body, controlling spasms. I know sometimes it’s an issue with insurance, but RTI really tries their best to work with insurance companies to get you what you need.”
Building strength in weak muscles
Andy leads a very full life and enjoys his job folding towels with the local YMCA. He is determined to fight to be as independent as he can be. The RT300 makes it possible for him to build strength in weak muscles giving him the opportunity to increase his independence. Now that is worth fighting for!
Improved muscle strength and tone
With the FES he’s walking even better, because it increases his muscle strength and that gives him more stability and endurance. I see the progress in his balance. The exercise improves his muscle strength and tone."
Improved cardiovascular fitness
RTI collects the data from his sessions through the Internet and sends Robert feedback. “Lately I’ve been able to pedal and drive the stim down.” he shares. Robert says that RT300 FES has improved his cardiovascular fitness for sports, and strengthened his legs.
Went from 3 steps to 40 feet
Ilana’s progress has been tremendous since she began using the RT300. She’s gained over 200% strength in certain muscle groups. She went from being able to walk 3 steps to walking 40 feet in a prone walker (with assist due to other motor issues).
Increased circulation keeping him healthy
Chris’ mother adds, “We really think the RT300 has helped keep his muscles and legs from atrophying. We know others who are not using the RT300 and they have had some health problems. Chris has never had a single bladder infection. I think the increased circulation is keeping him healthy."
Feels good when she's done some physical activity
“Isabel's legs get tight so we pop her on the RT300 and it softens them. It’s amazing how it stretches them out. Isabel’s seen remarkable changes,” her mother says. “Isabel's mental outlook is always better after. She feels good when she’s done some physical activity. She’s in harmony when her whole body is exercised.”
He has more endurance and can go longer
“He does the RT300 about three times a week for 45 minutes to an hour. We can see his progress. We can see it on the graphs. And even without the graphs, we can see it in Noah. He can go longer. His health problems have lessened.
It was so important for her to have one at home
I believe that the time Megan spends on the RT300 is contributing to the strength of her leg muscles and aiding in her recovery, which is why it was so important for her to have one at home. At home she strives to use it for an hour at least three times a week to maintain the momentum of her recovery.
