Stroke

A patient says...

An 84-year-old woman talks about her positive experience and changes in rehabilitation with the STIWELL med4 after stroke.

“The therapy helped me reach my goal to confidently and independently cope with day-to-day activities. The current had positive effects on my sensation in my arm and hand. Grasping and moving objects were clearly more confident and easier after electrical treatment.”

Before therapy the patient reported that she felt severely impaired because she dropped objects. A relevant improvement of the grasping function was observed in therapy.

The video shows sequences from the treatment to relearn everyday activities with EMG-triggered multi-channel electrostimulation using the STIWELL med4 focusing on grasping and lifting the arm.
