People with Transverse Myelitis
What people with TM are saying
Within four hours, Sadie was paralyzed from the waist down
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?”
What the RT300 does is lets people continue rehab after they leave rehab
“The whole idea of seeing my legs contract is breathtaking,” she confides. “The last time I saw that, I didn’t even think to remember how it felt. I’ve gained muscle back."

|Why DO Restorative Therapies FES therapy?
Restorative Therapies FES therapy allows your legs or arms to move against resistance (like going up a hill) even if your injury has made it difficult for you to move your arms or your legs. Restorative Therapies FES will stimulate the nerves that connect to your muscles so that they contract and work.

Cristina L. Sadowsky, MD; Daniel Becker, MD, et al
Applying conceptually sound principles of
neural restoration through rehabilitation
and using rehabilitation as essential treatment, rather than as an afterthought to the neurologic injury, could allow for greater functional gains and better neural repair.
Physical activity and rehabilitation can be used as interventions to facilitate neuro-restoration by applying sound neurophysiologic principles rooted in neural plasticity, cell birth, myelination /remyelination, and synapse formation, all of them activity dependent.Read more

“I really enjoy my RT300 FES system for numerous reasons, but I am excited to see the increase of bone density in my legs. It makes my doctors happy and it decreases my chances of another break significantly. I have already gone through two broken femurs and I don’t want to do it again. My spasms aren’t totally gone, but they are manageable. I see the difference in the strength of my legs especially during a spasm. I hope this leads to standing and time in the pool in the very near future”. - Kristi Allen
