The Biomove 3000 system was specially developed for home therapy by the patient following a stroke. After a stroke, control signals from the brain often cannot reach some muscles, typically in the hand or foot. Without these signals, the level of electrical activity in these muscles is too low for them to contract adequately on their own. This causes them to become increasingly weaker.
The Biomove 3000 system, via three electrode patches placed on arm or leg, detects and amplifies even the slightest signals still being generated in the hand and foot muscles. Then, using an advanced form of biofeedback combined with electrical muscle stimulation the Biomove re-teaches the muscles to contract on their own. FDA 510(k) approval allows the Biomove 3000 to be marketed in the United States, where over 700,000 individuals experience a stroke each year. Millions of people suffer from the debilitating effects of stroke. Fifty percent have some one-sided paralysis and seek effective treatment for their severe, long-term disabilities. Chris Cane of Amjo Corp said, "We are delighted that Curatronic Ltd (the developer of the Biomove 3000) has received FDA approval for the Biomove 3000 system, which enables us to reach the many stroke victims in the US market with this economical, easy- to-use system.
"I have worked with many patients with CVA over the years retraining the functions of the upper reach and grasp and lower extremity stance and gait. I introduce this equipment to my students and hope that they will have it available to use in their clinical work after graduation. The best system I have seen for doing this so far, in terms of ease, adaptability, and simplicity of use, both for the therapist and the patient, is the Biomove 3000," says Prof. Jim Stephens at Temple University.
"All you need is a tiny bit of movement – even a finger or toe wiggling – to be a candidate for Biomove therapy," says Prof. Leonard Elbaum, Florida International University.
