At the forefront of advancing MS rehabilitation and treatment through WB-EMS is the Neuro20 PRO System. The Neuro20 PRO system offers a comprehensive WB-EMS platform for clinicians and practitioners seeking to empower their MS patients with a technology-focused, whole-body treatment approach. To explore the transformative possibilities provided by the Neuro20 PRO System, we turn to the expertise and personal experience of Dr. George Maltezos—an expert in medical device production and current Executive Director of the WALK foundation, a non-profit devoted to sharing the health benefits of electro-stimulation.
How Electrical Muscle Stimulation Helps Patients with MS
Having spent over 15 years living with MS and exploring various treatment options, Dr. Maltezos has become a seasoned expert in managing the condition. As someone who understands the challenges all too well, he explains, “I have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), meaning my muscles work but my nerves don’t. For years I have relied on NMES to keep my body fit. I have used everything including Russian Stim, specialized research devices, and even a robotic exoskeleton.” After a long journey of seeking effective solutions, Dr. Maltezos discovered the power of Neuro20, stating, “I am happy to say that the better way is finally here, in the form of the Neuro20 PRO System.”
Electrical muscle stimulation, as utilized by the Neuro20 PRO System, has shown immense potential in helping MS patients regain and maintain muscle strength, flexibility, and overall physical well-being. By delivering electrical impulses to targeted muscles, the Neuro20 PRO System bypasses the damaged nerve pathways characteristic of MS, directly stimulating muscle contractions.
This approach offers several key benefits for individuals with MS, including:
Technology Designed for Effective Rehabilitation
With its seamless integration of hardware and software, the Neuro20 PRO System sets a new standard in MS treatment, giving individuals greater control over their well-being and providing healthcare professionals with valuable insights to optimize the effectiveness of the treatment. Dr. Maltezos emphasizes the impressive features of this new technology, sharing:
“The Neuro20 PRO System’s integration with an iPad app allows me to track every workout and share the data with my medical team. It’s an excellent way to monitor my progress and ensure that the stimulation is consistently effective.”
The ease of connectivity is another remarkable aspect of the system. Dr. Maltezos adds, “The electronics click in and connect directly through the suit. The electronics then connect via Bluetooth to an iPad, which your therapist can see and use to tailor your program to produce the best results.”
A Whole-Body EMS Suit Designed with Comfort in Mind
Designed with comfort in mind, the Neuro20 PRO Smart Suit is a flexible and machine-washable whole-body electrical muscle stimulation (WB-EMS) wearable. Dr. Maltezos enthusiastically describes the Neuro20 PRO Smart Suit, stating, “It’s everything I have dreamed of – the perfect system for getting my muscles moving.”
He further explains the comfort and convenience it offers, saying, “There was no tingly pain or uncomfortable burning. I did not have to apply any stickers that rip off my hair or hook up any annoying wires. The electrodes are very different from the old hydrogel stickers. Muscles are different shapes, and each Neuro20 electrode has a matching custom shape. They are padded, comfortable, and form-fitting.”
The Neuro20 PRO Smart Suit fabric and electrodes are designed to stretch and mold to the body, providing a personalized and comfortable exercise experience. Dr. Maltezos aptly compares it to “a pair of yoga pants with super-powers” highlighting the combination of functionality and comfort that makes the Neuro20 PRO Smart Suit a remarkable wearable for MS treatment.
The Neuro20 PRO System, through its utilization of whole-body electrical muscle stimulation, presents a new and non-invasive solution to address the everyday symptoms experienced by patients struggling with MS. By precisely targeting and stimulating specific muscle groups, the Neuro20 PRO System empowers individuals to effectively manage their symptoms, resulting in improved mobility, reduced discomfort, and an overall enhanced quality of life.
This innovative approach offers hope and relief to those living with MS, changing the treatment landscape and providing new opportunities for individuals to regain control over their everyday functions. With the Neuro20 PRO System, the future holds promise for a more comfortable and fulfilling life for patients battling the challenges of MS.
