Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) Devices Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) is a non-invasive, non-addictive means of muscle rehabilitation after injury, surgery or disease.
Patients with a wide range of orthopedic and neurologic diagnoses can benefit from NMES, which applies customized electrical stimulus to cause a muscle to contract.
By assisting with muscle contraction, NMES can help a patient regain function and resume their daily activities more quickly. NMES is indicated for the prevention of disuse atrophy, muscle re-education, relaxation of muscle spasms, maintaining or increasing range of motion, prevention of venous thrombosis in selective muscles immediately post-surgery, increasing local blood circulation, strengthening weak or injured muscles.
For patients that benefit from NMES in the clinical setting, home NMES can augment or replace ongoing clinical treatments. The clinician can adjust the NMES device to provide the maximum efficiency for the patient.
