RT300 Leg | Arm | Core
Restore muscle mass in leg or arm and core muscles with revolutionary integrated functional electrical stimulation (iFES).
The RT300 Leg | Arm | Core incorporates all of the muscle therapy capabilities of the RT300 product line, including iFES leg or arm & core muscle therapy.
How it Works
A clinician will customize the stimulation settings to evoke the desired muscle contraction for each muscle group. The settings will be adjusted to accommodate the patients level of sensation and therapeutic needs. Sensation varies greatly between someone with a complete vs. incomplete spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, or traumatic brain injury - the ability to customize the stimulation settings is critical for patient comfort, safety and outcomes. Full stimulation customization is unique and only available with Restorative Therapies iFES devices.
Electrodes are placed on the target muscle groups and the clinician will conduct muscle testing to ensure optimal response. After the settings are customized, the warm-up phase will begin to slowly move the body and ramp up the stimulation. The active therapy phase will begin, ending with a cool down. Warm-up and cool-down phases are to keep patients comfortable and safe. Active therapy ensures that the appropriate levels of resistance and stimulation are applied to optimize session results.
All stimulation is appropriately coordinated during the leg or arm motion based on the muscle selection.
