Coordinated iFES-Evoked Movement Patterns

The repetitive practice of task-specific, functional activities have long been a cornerstone of physical and occupational therapy rehabilitation programs for patients with neurological impairments or muscle weakness. In response to clinician feedback, Restorative Therapies developed Xcite, a system designed to be easily integrated into these traditional therapy interventions. Xcite was developed to be a complementary task-specific modality to work in combination with our other massed practice therapy systems.

Xcite enhances the impact of the traditional therapeutic activities that support muscle re-education by:

  • Enhancing active muscle contractions
  • Facilitating dynamic, reciprocal movement patterns for normalized input
  • Providing patient feedback
  • Including four libraries with over 40 functional activities

How it Works

The Xcite iFES Clinical Station provides a variety of coordinated, iFES-evoked dynamic movement patterns available in four therapy libraries: 

  • Hand Activities
  • Upper Extremity Activities
  • Lower Extremity Activities
  • General Activities

Examples of the activities that can be performed with the Xcite include: 

  • Grasp and release
  • Feeding
  • Transfers
  • Heel slides
  • Sit to stand

Each activity has the correct sequenced stimulation pattern to perform the prescribed activity. The Xcite also has on-screen guides for electrode placement to facilitate setup and visible and audible cues to assist the completion of each pattern.

Clinical Station Components

The Xcite iFES clinical station includes:

  • A battery-powered stimulator with up to 12 channels of stimulation that can be used on or away from the therapy cart
  • A mobile therapy cart that holds electrodes, cables, and accessories
  • Remote activation and control of therapy
