About the RT300-S
In the treatment of neurological damage, FES is used to restore motor functions to previously paralyzed muscles. The RT300-S delivers electrical currents to activate the quadriceps, hamstring and gluteal muscles, enabling patients to achieve regular patterned physical activity. “For these patients there is just no other way to get enough activity to protect their health from all the serious secondary complications that arise from immobility associated with paralysis” said Dr John McDonald of the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. Restorative Therapies has marketed the RT300-S in the USA since receiving FDA clearance for the device in June 2005.
