Gentle Electrical Stimulation
Through gentle electrical pulses that create comfortable muscle contractions, Gentle Electrical Stimulation helps to:
- Manage pain
- Re-train muscles
- Improve local blood circulation, which promotes healing
- Manage muscle spasms
- Increase range of motions
- Pain issues
- Wounds that are slow to heal
- Joint and orthopedic issues
- Problems with falling
Medical research demonstrates that gentle electrical stimulation to the arms, legs, and body can help improve circulation, strength, and movement, even for those who have been weakened by chronic heart failure (CHF).
Patterned Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation (PENS)
A patented form of electrical stimulation, Patterned Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation (PENS) helps nerves and muscles work together. With PENS as part of the rehabilitation plan, the goal is to help the resident achieve normal movement.
PENS helps with:
- Improving local blood circulation, which promotes healing
- Reducing pain and muscle spasms
- Muscle weakness
- Re-training muscles
- Stroke recovery
- Joint replacement recovery
- Improving bladder control
- Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis
Recent medical research demonstrates that mild electrical stimulation applied to the arms, legs, and body can help improve circulation, strength, and movement for those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
