My Friend or Loved One Has a Neurological Impairment
What clinicians are saying
Stephen Kanter, PT, DPT, ACT
As a physical therapist I value the way RT300 provides FES integrated with motor assistance, enabling patients with very weak muscles to engage with the therapy. The immediate benefit we see in patients using RT300 is movement. Patients who could not otherwise move in this way can do it
YMCA Healthy Living Center integrates RT300 into its leading edge programs RT300 is located in line with other equipment so that users are able to be part of the wider membership community. In fact, RT300 users recently took part in a fund raising cycle-a-thon along side with other members of the YMCA Healthy Living Center.
Dr Daniel Becker
People need lifelong activity based restorative therapy. It is even more important for patients with MS, because it is a progressive disease, as opposed to many other neurological injuries. A home based therapy regimen allows patients to continue their prescribed ABRT program on a long-term, continuous basis...RT300 is currently the most efficient device we use to deliver functional electrical stimulation.
Julie Waldie, DPT
We know from experience the value that RT300 FES therapy provides for people with spinal cord injuries and this application is supported by a large body of research. We also understand the neuroplasticity of the brain and how people can recover function, and we see this frequently in stroke and TBI patients.
Erica Densé, PT, DPT, CCI
I have been using RT300 for almost 2 years now and our facility is mostly using it with clients with TBIs and SCIs. We are utilizing it for multiple reasons including reduction in muscle spasms, improved circulation, ROM, strengthening and pressure relief. We have integrated the off-RT300 stimulation feature to further challenge our clients functionally while performing weight shifting, transfers, and gait training over ground.
Help your friend or loved one make a change for the better
Numerous diseases, accidents, or conditions result in neurological impairment that is often accompanied by reduced activity level or immobility. Among these are cerebral palsy (CP), multiple sclerosis (MS), spina bifida, traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), spinal cord injury (SCI), and transverse myelitis (TM).
For your friend or loved one, the combination of a neurological impairment, decreased mobility and a gradual or sudden change in functional independence can lead to feelings of frustration, anxiety, helplessness or even depression and a loss of optimism about the future. Those feelings can be shared by family and friends who watch the individual come to terms with major changes in health and lifestyle and particularly for those of you who personally assist in their care.
Make your friend or loved one's team bigger
You can help your friend or loved one do more than he or she - perhaps even you - thought possible. Your research here is a very important first step.
Restorative Therapies is dedicated to helping individuals with neurological impairments achieve their full recovery potential. The Restorative Therapies FES powered systems are designed to help enhance muscle activity with effects including overall physical and mental health, self-perception, and quality of life as documented in the research.
These physical benefits of our FES systems will help your friend or loved one:
- Reverse muscle atrophy
- Improve local circulation
- Improve range of motion
- Reduce spasms
Restorative Therapies' line of medical devices provide your friend or loved one with many options for neurorehabilitation in the clinic and at home to maintain continuity of care.
Our systems include our arm or leg therapy (RT300), our combination arm and leg therapy (RT200) that enables you to work arms and legs simultaneously, and the (RT600) stepping system that provides gradual support of body weight as it can be tolerated.
Hope and opportunity
Don’t let decreased physical activity due to neurological impairment prevent your friend or loved one from reaping the important benefits associated with consistent activity.
