Medical back belt with integrated neuromuscular electrical stimulation

Medical back belt with integrated neuromuscular electrical stimulation

Samenvatting

The medical back belt with integrated neuromuscular electrical stimulation is anorthopedic device, which has two main functions. The first function is to stimulate the backmuscles by using a neuromuscular electrical stimulation device that releases regular,electrical impulses. The second function of the medical back belt is the stabilization of theback after lumbar disk herniation’s so that a straight posture can be realized.The product has the opportunity to give lumbar back support and encourage the back musclesto prevent muscle weakness. The integrated neuromuscular electrical stimulation in the beltconsists out of two main components: The NMES device and the textile electrodes. Byactivating the NMES device it transmits electrical impulse to the textile electrodes, which canprickle the muscles.In the future, this product possibly can make a straight posture of the back andsimultaneously stimulation of the back muscles possible.
