The MediStim XP is a portable, digital, dual channel Muscle Stimulation Device incorporating a comprehensive range of programmes to aid the rehabilitaion process in the Clinic and at Home.
The MediStim XP re-educates and strengthens atrophied, weakend or immobilised muscles through Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) therapy and aids in the management of acute pain through Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). The device works by triggering muscles to contract and relax. Joint range of motion can also be improved. The device can be used to effectively relax muscle spasms and prevent the risk of venous thrombosis after surgery. It’s easy to use with pre-set programmes.
