The EMS/TENS neuromuscular stimulator SwissSTIM® is available in two versions.
The SwissSTIM® has been designed and manufactured to the highest standards in order to assist patients recovering from various medical issues that can benefit from the prescribed use of neuromuscular stimulation. These medical issues include prevention of muscle atrophy, relaxation of muscle, spasms, improving blood circulation, muscle re-education, muscle strengthening and improving range of motion and pain control.
An important capability of the SwissSTIM® is pain control. Pain, while unpleasant, is an important warning system that alerts us to an actual injury or disease. Pain is described as either acute or chronic. Acute pain is typically limited in duration and often occurs due to workplace or recreational injuries. Chronic pain is long-lasting, persistent pain that may no longer serve a warning function and thus becomes a problem.
SwissSTIM® has the ability to help relieve both chronic and acute pain.
FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE PROGRAMS
In order to even better fulfill the needs of the patients, the SwissSTIM (revision 1.3 and higher) offers four fully customizable programs. This feature allows the therapist to deliver a tailor-made treatment to each patient.
The customizable parameters are:
|DURATION [MIN]||the total duration of the program in minutes (1 to 60 minutes)|
|RAMP [S]||the duration of the intensity ramp in seconds (0 to 5 seconds, should be zero if no ramp wanted)|
|P. FREQ [HZ]||the pulse rate in Hertz or pulse per second (1 to 120)|
|P. WIDTH[US]||the pulse duration in microseconds (0 to 1000, should be zero if no pulse wanted)|
|DURATION [S]||the duration of the ON or OFF time phase in seconds (0 to 60, should be zero if no ON time phase wanted)|
|Waveforms||The waveforms are monophasic rectangular, voltage regulated|
|Parameters||The parameters (pulse rate, pulse duration, stimulation time, rest time) are optimized for each program|
|Pulse duration||Maximal pulse 1000 µs (depending on program)|
|Pulse frequency range||1 – 120 Hz|
|Maximum output||50Volt ± 10%|
|Channels||2 independent, isolated channels with separate intensity control levels for each channel|
