Bioness Neuroprosthetic and Rehabilitation Splint Systems

For neurological patients at Covenant Rehab Centers, the Bioness Neuroprosthetic and Rehabilitation Systems for neurological recovery can make all the difference in the world. Allowing therapy to begin in an acute care setting just days after a stroke occurs, the Bioness system helps to provide valuable feedback to the central nervous system and synchronize functional muscle activity. Two devices are available for utilization at Covenant Rehab Centers—the Ness H200 for hand therapy, and the Ness L300 for leg therapy.

Ness H200 for Hand Therapy

How does it work?

The Bioness system uses Functional Electronic Stimulation (FES) to help patients regain lost mobility. When treatment begins, electrodes are placed on the skin’s surface to stimulate and activate affected muscles. Then the therapist programs the devices with a customized sequence of exercises. Once programmed, the Bioness systems send mild electric stimulation to the nerves that perform a particular sequence. This forces the affected areas to move in repetitive motions.

What are the benefits?

The Bioness system can help improve function and voluntary movement, increase range of motion, reduce stiffness, increase local blood circulation and prevent or retard muscle weakness in the affected region. It can also help the brain relearn how to use certain muscles and regain awareness of the impaired limb.
