  • Best Stim for quads?

    Title said it all, my unit dies today (very old Compex) and I need a new one. What would be the best Stim for a C6 quad (dead pectorals, triceps, hands,... you know)?
    -Ramps in buildings are necessary, but it would be usefull to have another ones for people (mind/heart).....

        I have a device called a Zynex brand device. This was recommended to me by the hospital where I was patient, it was not cheap at $250 each, and I have two. it was supposed to be prescription grade so to speak, because it required a doctor's prescription.

        I do not know whether this is actually any better than any other device, I would love to hear anyone's opinion On this or any other suggestions?

        I am never satisfied with what I have, please offer any suggestions.

        Rick, have you actually used the PowerDot? I'm curious about any feet on the ground experience, particularly to learn if it's more powerful than typical TENS units that don't really give much FES-like tone to atrophied muscle. All of their advertising on social media, which is oddly plentiful, showcases short videos of muscles quivering under the massive electrical load. But I'm wary of clever marketing when I see it!

          I've been using it regularly for a few months. Definitely more powerful and more advanced than your typical TENS unit. It has a variety of pre-set programs with range adjustable capabilities. Good quality. Easy to use. It's a good tool.
