Zynex, Inc., a provider and developer of non-invasive medical devices for electrotherapy and stroke rehabilitation, neurological diagnosis and cardiac monitoring, announced today that China's State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) has granted clearance to market its NeuroMove™ stroke recovery device.

The NeuroMove™ device increases the functionality of many stroke victims by teaching the healthy parts of the brain to compensate for damaged areas. The NeuroMove™, which is significantly more sensitive than most diagnostic equipment, monitors muscle activity and selects signals from the brain indicating that the patient is attempting to move a certain muscle. It then introduces the actual movement through electrical stimulation. Eventually the connection between the brain and muscle can often be reestablished. The NeuroMove™ can also be used to treat spinal cord injuries.
