TipStim – rehabilitation of sensorimotor abilities
Patients with reduced sensory function in their fingertips caused by brain damage have very limited possibilities for rehabilitation. This is why TipStim was created. Stimulation of fingertips with electric impulses contributes to the restoration of the sensory function. In addition, the device is equipped with the TENS programme extending its range of functions.
The principle of TipStim is to activate damaged brain areas and intact surrounding area, using electricity to strengthen the transmission and processing of impulses. Stimulation is not continuous, but intermittent with stimulation and pause times, the duration of which changes during 1hour long therapy session.
Although the main objective of TipStim is to restore finger sensitivity, it also restores the motor function, albeit to a lesser extent.
