  • Stimulette Den2x

    Hi guys,

    The Stimulette Den2x is now available to trial/purchase in the UK.

    For those of you who are not familiar with it, the product is designed to stimulate denervated muscles where traditional FES does not work ie typical of many lower motor lesions.

    Here are some pdfs attached with some info about it.

    Any thoughts on how this would effect the existing (albeit very weak) contractions in an incomplete SCI? Would it be detrimental at all to existing flickers/contractions?

    Thanks & regards

            I am surprised that no body else has really showed any interest in this unit. I have exchanged a few emails with a dealer and the manufacturer but have not had much success in trying to get this to the USA. Have been told so far I would need to come to Austria for an appointment to make sure that it would work for me...I can not do all that. I will let you know of anything changes.

              I have been assured it will work for all lower motor lesions. I will try it out and I will also get a few more of my lower motor lesion friends to try it too and will give you feedback.

              I would have expected more excitement on here too

                Will it work for somebody like me that has been paralyzed over a decade? The file said that they have only gotten it to work on injuries up to 9 years.

                    Stimulette results?

                    I'm very interested in how the trial of the Stimulette turned out... any news? My boyfriend is T7 complete and stim doesn't work on his legs at all.

                      Hi VBNoon

                      I tried the device out last week and it works for me and also a couple of other guys with similar lower motor lesions. My quads were contracting enough to kick my legs off the wheelchair footplate.

                      I have decided to invest in the device for home-use.

                      Let me know if you have anymore questions.

                        That's terrific news! I'd be interested in knowing the price and whether they can sell it in the US yet. Is your injury complete? It is theorized that my boyfriend had a spinal stroke, so there is no feeling or motor response for his core or legs. Getting those muscles responding again would be fantastic.

                          Hi VBNoon,

                          has your boyfriend actually had a regular FES (functional electronic stimulation) trial yet? If not, I would suggest you try that first at one of your local rehab centres. I would expect at T7 that the regular FES should work ok. At T7 I would not have expected lower motor damage - although I guess anything is possible with the diversity of SCI.

                          My injury is incomplete but this device is shown to work for both incomplete and complete lower motor lesions - even for injuries older than a decade.

                          The device costs approx $6200 in the UK at the moment. I dont believe there is a distributor in the US as of yet but CareCure members IMHopeful and Lyerly are interested in the device too. So they might be able to fill you in on any progress with getting the device to the US.

                            Thanks Fly. My boyfriend had several tests to check his response, but nothing works.

                              What was your BF tested with? I do not think that this unit or anything comprable to it is in the USA. From what I read it also takes time to build up to a visible response, even with this unit.
