Hashmonaim, Israel (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
Curatronic Ltd. announced today that it has obtained U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) marketing approval for their new Biomove 5000 Stroke Rehabilitation system.
The Biomove 5000 offers very clear audiovisual biofeedback information in combination with muscle stimulation to the stroke survivor, making application not only straight forward in clinical settings but also for use by the stroke survivor at home.
The one knob operated full automatic device detects extremely small electrical EMG signals that persist in spastic muscles after a stroke and uses these tiny signals to initiate electrical stimulation impulses to these muscles, resulting in actual muscle movement. In addition to stroke rehabilitation the new device is also well suited for use with patients suffering from muscle paralysis after Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Cerebral Palsy (CP) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
In the United States more than 700,000 individuals experience a stoke each year. Millions of people suffer from the debilitating effects of stroke. Fifty percent have one-sided paralysis and seek effective treatment for their severe, long-term disabilities.
Ben Philipson, President of Curatronic Ltd. said, "We are very pleased to have now also received FDA marketing approval for the new Biomove 5000 system, in addition to the Biomove 3000 home system already successfully marketed, enabling us to offer this superior and very easy-to-use stroke rehabilitation system to the many stroke survivors in the United States. In addition, our CE certification enables us to start marketing of this new device in Europe as well."
