|Williamsburg, Virginia -Today Therapeutic Alliances Inc.
(TAI) of Fairborn, Ohio USA introduced the new ERGYS 2 Rehabilitation System. The ERGYS 2,
a leg cycle ergometer featuring TAI's proprietary functional electrical stimulation (FES)
technology, builds on twelve years of experience with the REGYS and ERGYS 1 Rehabilitation
Systems which are in use in more than 500 clinics and homes worldwide.
The ERGYS 2 is designed to maintain and improve the health of individuals with spinal
cord injury, as well as those suffering from multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, or
stroke. The clinician can choose from a number of workload regimes and biphasic stimulus
waveforms to tailor the ERGYS 2 to a patients specific therapeutic needs. According to TAI
president Mr. James Schorey, "TAI's rallying cry 'The Power of Your Muscles', is more
inclusive than ever with the ERGYS 2."
|Therapeutic Alliances continues to offer full support for the REGYS and ERGYS 1
Rehabilitation Systems. "In fact," says Schorey, "the ERGYS 1 can be easily upgraded to include the powerful new features of the ERGYS 2." Along
with the ERGYS 2, TAI offers a full line of rehabilitation products, including the SpectraSTIM 2000 muscle stimulator and the NeuroEDUCATOR II electromyography
All in all, the ERGYS 2 is a major step forward
in the field of functional electrical stimulation. The ERGYS 2
will greatly increase the number of potential users of therapy
aimed at recovering lost muscle function as well as therapy aimed
at maintaining a patient's health.
