http://bit.ly/2KEfE4q #MyndTecInc MyndMove Non-Invasive Therapy & Assistive Device For People With Paralysis - combines patient participation, therapist expertise & functional electrical stimulation (FES) device to restore voluntary hand & arm function in patients suffering from upper-limb paralysis. Uses non-invasive functional electrical stimulation (FES), which utilizes low energy electrical pulses to artificially generate body movements in individuals who have been paralyzed due to injury to the central nervous system. MyndMove Therapy works by stimulating neural pathways engaged when practicing & executing natural movements. Patients participate in a concentrated treatment regimen to realize meaningful results. MyndMove device delivers electrical stimulation to muscles & muscles send signal through the afferent pathway to the brain. Patients attempting movement send a signal through the efferent pathway to the muscle. Based on the concept of neuroplasticity, a new pathway for the intended movement is established. MyndMove requires specially trained occupational and physiotherapists to deliver therapy to patients. #AssistiveDevice#assistivetechnology#assistivetech#specialneeds#WearableTech#wearables#wearabledevice#medtech#PhysicalTherapy#PhysicalRehabilitation#rehab#meddevice#Stroke#SpinalCordInjury#NervePalsy

New #Innovation call! Our GDN partner is seeking an easy #assist emergency control valve to allow customers on the Ofgem Priority Service Register, the ability to operate & switch off the #gas supply and ensure #safety. It is envisaged that the solution will allow customers in vulnerable situations, with restricted physical capability, the ability to switch off the gas supply in the event of a gas escape. The successful solution would be trialled in a controlled area, with the potential for roll out to relevant customers registered on the PSR.
