Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation or NMES

Why NMES

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation or NMES uses a device that sends electrical impulses to nerves. This input causes muscles to contract. The electrical stimulation can increase strength and range of motion, and offset the effects of disuse. It is often used to “re-train” or “re-educate” a muscle to function and to build strength after a surgery or period of disuse.

How to use

Use the  the muscle stimulator as follows...

  • 2-3 times a day for 15-30 minutes each time.
  • Place the muscle stimulator as instructed by your M-Medical representative for specific anatomy rehabilitation.
  • Increase intensity as instructed by you M-Medical representative to a comfortable twitch.  
  • After your therapy session remove the equipment and set aside until your next therapy session.

Sequential Compression Therapy

Why Compression Therapy

Intermittent sequential compression therapy (ISCT) is effective in reducing oedema of the lower limbs (Vowden, 2001) and can improve circulation of blood in the affected areas (Sayegh, 1987).


The primary functional aim of the device “is to squeeze blood from the underlying deep veins, which, assuming that the valves are competent, will be displaced proximally.” When the inflatable sleeves deflate, the veins will replenish with blood. The intermittent compressions of the sleeves will ensure the movement of venous blood.[2]


How to use

Please contact my office for specific use due to patient specific and anatommy requirments.
