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.

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.
