Neon ERGYS 2 LogoMedical complications resulting from paralysis pose a formidable challenge to rehabilitation medicine. Until recently, little was available for the long-term care and management of spinal cord injury. Now, Therapeutic Alliances Inc., a leading provider of state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment, offers an innovative product to improve your health.

A Powerful Idea

The ERGYS 2 Rehabilitation System uses computerized functional electrical stimulation (CFES) to allow persons with little or no voluntary leg movement to actively pedal a stationary leg-cycle ergometer.

Motion.GIF (50686 bytes)Here's how ERGYS CFES works: Computer generated, low-level electrical pulses transmitted through surface electrodes cause coordinated contractions of your leg muscles. Sensors located in the ERGYS provide continuous feedback to a computer which controls the sequence of muscle contractions as well as the resistance to pedaling. The result is smooth and natural pedaling, with your leg muscles supplying the power.

 

Powerful Results

The ERGYS provides significant benefits for both paraplegics and quadriplegics, including:

bulletIncreased muscle mass, strength, and endurance
bulletRelaxation of muscle spasms
bulletImproved circulation
bulletIncreased range of motion

Published clinical studies have also documented increases in muscle mass, improvements in cardiopulmonary function, a reduction in the frequency of pressure sores, improvements in bowel and bladder function, and a decreased incidence of urinary tract infections.

Perhaps just as important as these therapeutic benefits is the sense of well-being that comes from taking a "whole-body" approach to your health.

Better Health Begins Today

Realizing the healthful benefits of CFES begins with entry into an ERGYS or REGYS program at a center near you. As you progress in the program, you have the option to continue your sessions at the center or to acquire an ERGYS for home use. Insurance coverage is often available both for sessions at the center and for the purchase of an ERGYS home system.

Contact Therapeutic Alliances today to start your ERGYS program!
