Functional electrical stimulation (FES) uses small amounts of electrical current to empower people with weakened or paralyzed muscles to perform functional movements. FES is applied via electrode pads placed on the skin over target muscle groups. The electrical current stimulates the peripheral nerves in the muscle, causing the nerve to fire. This, in turn, causes the muscle to contract, using the body’s own potential energy to perform functional movement, hence MYOLYN’s slogan: Powering Your Potential. FES can be used to help people with neurological disorders like spinal cord injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and more. It can also benefit people who have trouble activating their muscles after an orthopedic surgery like an ACL reconstruction or knee replacement. The benefits of FES include: Relaxation of muscle spasms Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy Increasing local blood circulation Maintaining or increasing range of motion Some studies have also shown that FES can increase bone density, re-educate muscles, improve functionality, and improve cardiovascular health. MYOLYN has years of experience researching and developing the latest FES technologies. The company's first products use FES to empower people living with muscle weakness or paralysis to perform therapeutic load-bearing exercise in the form of cycling. EASY TO USE The MyoCycle Pro is so easy to use, therapists spend less time on setup and more time on ensuring that their patients are getting the best therapy possible. ACCURATE The MyoCycle Pro is the only FES bike that provides an accurate measurement of the patient’s active muscle power, giving therapists data on a patient’s strength and endurance with unrivaled accuracy. Workout summaries are automatically saved to the cloud, ensuring that data is never lost and providing therapists with a way to quantify patient progress.
