Stroke rehab

Dear fellow caregivers.  

I just found this site.  Praise God for the support network! 

My husband had 2 strokes in May.   He has deficiencies in both the left arm/hand and leg.   We are in rehab.   Rehab has begun to use a muscle stimulator on the arm/hand.  They recommended I explore one for home.   

I would am looking to see if anyone has purchased one of these for the home and what model they would recommend and their experience (positive and negative.   

Thanks Dianne

    Good morning, I have sent an email to our Stroke program managers to see if they can help give you a few guidelines on what to look for in a good muscle stimulator. We can't recommend one product over another, but we can help you determine what qualities the muscle stimulator needs. I can also share the article we have on Functional Electrical Stimulation to give you a bit of background. 

    Thanks, Katie
