Xcite Functional Electrical Stimulation Clincial Station Nominated for 2017 Innovation Award
24th April, 2017
Baltimore, MD - April 20, 2017 -- Restorative Therapies Xcite Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Clinical Station has been nominated for the 2017 Innovation Award by the European Neuro Convention, Europe s leading trade show for Brain and Spine experts. The Innovation Award recognises the most innovative tools, products, and services in neurological treatment and rehabilitation.
Xcite FES Clinical Station will be shown at the European Neuro Convention taking place at ExCel, London, UK over June 7-8, 2017. Restorative Therapies will be featuring live demonstrations of Xcite, and experts will be on hand at booth number 1020 to discuss the clinical applications.
Xcite is a portable, multi-channel FES therapy system. Easy to use pre-programmed activity libraries for hands, upper extremity, lower extremity and general activities deliver sequenced stimulation enabling a patient s weak or paralyzed muscles to move through dynamic movement patterns. Xcite assists patients to perform task specific, strengthening and gross motor activities using up to 12 channels of stimulation.
The on-screen photo guide for electrode placement facilitates easy set up. An avatar demonstrates each activity and there are chimes to indicate transitions providing visual and auditory cues that assist your patient with timing and awareness of movements.
Repetitive practice of task specific, strengthening and gross motor activities have long been a cornerstone of PT and OT programs for patients with neurological impairments or muscle weakness, says Wendy Warfield, MSHA, OTR/L, Clinical Education Manager of Restorative Therapies. Xcite is designed to be easily integrated into these traditional programs. Xcite enhances the impact of the traditional therapeutic activities that support neuromuscular reeducation.
There is nothing else on the market that compares to Xcite…It is great to finally have a device that allows you to work on precise motor control and dexterity while providing FES…Xcite s ability to control each movement channel individually allows you to facilitate accurate and functional movement patterns for greater recovery, said Jenny Suggit, MS OTR/L, CLT, Occupational Therapist, Centre Manager, Neurokinex-Gatwick, UK.
