The ReGrasp system has two modes of stimulation:
The ReGrasp has a dedicated mode for functional electrical stimulation (FES), which allows manual control over hand-opening and hand-closing stimulation. This control is accomplished by either: 1) physically tapping the STIM, or 2) by executing head-motion patterns with the head motion sensor (HMS)*.
TIP: For more information on activation and using the HMS, check out the following article: how does the head motion sensor work?
The ReGrasp system contains two passive, timer-based exercise programs:
Automatically cycles between relax (no stimulation), hand-open stimulation, and hand-close stimulation at the currently configured intensity settings.
- Condition muscles of the forearm and hand
- Increase or maintain rang-of-motion
|Cardio||Automatically cycles between relax (no stimulation), hand-open stimulation, and hand-close stimulation at 30% of the currently configured intensity settings.||
- Promote blood circulation to the forearm and hand
- Reduction of muscle spasm
NOTE: Both programs run for a maximum of 20 minutes per session, but can be stopped or paused at any time.
CAUTION: Do not exceed one 20 minute exercise-mode session
per day unless instructed otherwise by a medical professional.
WARNING: Muscle soreness may occur, much like during regular
exercise. Limit the amount of usage per day according to exercise-related soreness. If pain is experienced, immediately discontinue exercise and contact your medical professional.
