Restorative Therapies, Inc., Today Announced a Rehabilitation Breakthrough, the RT600 Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Stepper
Date:5/31/2011

BALTIMORE, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Restorative Therapies, Inc., advances its new era in physical therapy systems for neurological injury and paralysis with FDA clearance of the world's first Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) rehabilitation therapy system for stepping and standing.

FES is a physical therapy rehabilitation modality used to evoke physical activity and exercise not otherwise possible for individuals with a neurological impairment such as a spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy.  The new RT600 system delivers electrical currents to stimulate nerves which activate core and leg muscles including the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteals, gastroc, anterior tibialis, abdominals and erector spinae to evoke stepping and standing activity.  This rehabilitation enables a patient's paralyzed or weak legs to move through patterned physical activity utilizing their own muscles while safely positioned in a partial body weight supporting harness.

"The RT600 is the first physical therapy system to bring the established benefits of FES to weight supported stepping for people with neurological impairments," said Prof. David Ditor of Brock University, in Ontario, Canada.

"It is the first truly practical rehabilitation system of this kind that I have seen.  In addition to combining several valuable neuro-rehabilitation interventions, functional electrical stimulation, locomotor gait training and neuromuscular re-education, the RT600 is small and easy enough to use that I can one day envision it in the patient's home," said Cristina Sadowsky of the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland.
