MyndMove is a new and exciting modality developed by MyndTec Inc. right here in Canada! Using an 8 channelled functional electrical stimulation (FES) device, MyndMove's aim is to improve purposeful movement of a client's arm and hand. Different from a typical FES system, MyndMove is a dynamic therapy where a patient actively attempts a desired movement assisted by a therapist while being stimulated. It is the hope that with this therapy, a person would regain purposeful patterns of movement to better independance and in turn, improve quality of life. Currently, MyndMove is helping to treat paralysis in individuals that have suffered from a stroke or a spinal cord injury.
There have been numerous clinical studies looking at how effective MyndMove has on recovery. The results have shown that people with high level spinal cord injuries (C1-C7) and anyone with a stroke (acute or chronic) has had some lasting recovery in their upper extremities after an intensive bout with the MyndMove product.
