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.
