Restorative Therapies, Inc. advances its new era in physical and occupational therapy systems for neurological injury and paralysis, announcing new options for home-based use of the groundbreaking RT300 functional electrical stimulation (FES) cycling system.

RT300 is the most practical FES cycle because its flexibility and expandability allow it to cater to the varied needs of people with a neurological injury or paralysis.

FES is a physical and occupational therapy modality used to evoke functional movements and exercise not otherwise possible for individuals with a neurological impairment such as a spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, brain injury or transverse myelitis.

Restorative Therapies is the developer of FES medical devices for clinic and at home activity-based therapies. RT300 FES cycle is the result of Restorative Therapies’ ongoing commitment to the research and development of FES powered physical and occupational therapy systems. RT300 is the FES cycle chosen by all leading neurological rehabilitation clinics. RT300 has been used by over 65,000 individuals with neurological impairments.

RT300 is available for home use with an entry level system starting at $10,995. This 6 channel leg and trunk FES system includes multiple therapy options including standard, isokinetic and interval therapies and access to our FES therapy database RTILink.com which tracks outcomes motivating patients. RT300 is also unique in being easily expanded to include arms, additional channels of FES and ability to target any impaired leg, arm, shoulder or trunk muscle group.

Many people can also benefit from the use of FES separate from cycling, as a therapy for functional activities such as standing, transfers, feeding, brushing hair etc. Restorative Therapies' new Xcite system evokes coordinated muscle contractions to assist with a wide range of task specific, strengthening and gross motor activities. RT300 home systems are expanding to include Xcite at home so patients can benefit not only from cycling but also these other activities.

Restorative Therapies' commitment to RT300 home use is supported by our acclaimed insurance reimbursement process and dedicated clinical and technical support teams.

"Very impressed with the ownership Restorative Therapies took of the insurance appeal process. Meredith our installer was wonderful during the install process and I appreciate her knowledge and patience,” said Maryann Murphy, RT300 at home rider. “The quality of RT300 is excellent and the user manuals and website are very helpful. I had an excellent experience with Restorative Therapies and I appreciate the resources and customer support that I have access to as a customer."

“RT300 is the most practical FES cycle because its flexibility and expandability allow it to cater to the varied needs of people with a neurological injury or paralysis. Reaching over 65,000 individuals is the result of a huge team effort between Restorative Therapies and our clinic partners," says Andrew Barriskill, CEO of Restorative Therapies. “Together we have worked to make RT300 easy to use at home. Our new entry level systems with important therapy options including Xcite will help us assist more people with neurological impairments at home.”

"The continued growth of home FES cycling is enormously motivating to me and my team,” said Wendy Warfield MSHA, OTR/L, Clinical Manager of Restorative Therapies. “This level of at-home FES use completes the continuum of care for people with weak or paralyzed muscles due to a variety of conditions, diseases, and events,” concludes Warfield.
