Denervated muscles (tumor)
Stefan used the STIWELL electrotherapy device successfully to treat denervated muscles related to thyroid cancer and spinal cord tumor.
Since the age of three years, Stefan has suffered from a rare type of thyroid cancer. He is not treated at a hospital but given loving care by his family at home. Due to a tumor pressing on the nerves of his spinal cord, Stefan is paralyzed from the chest down.
Stefan started using the STIWELL electrotherapy device. His father helps him twice a day to use the programme for denervated muscles (rectangular pulse, trapezoid pulse). The electrodes are mainly attached to his legs.
Regular training has led to clear improvements. Stefan’s father says: “Before that, my son’s legs were absolutely still, but now I can see him move parts of his leg muscles.”
