Stivax Neurostimulation for Pain/Mobility Tissue Oxygenation, Peripheral Artery Disease
Because acute and chronic pain sufferers have different needs, Stivax output can be customized for each individual patient by diagnosis, comfort and tolerance. The initial application is designed to immediately mitigate pain and provide early relief. Array placement modifications and output adjustments may be made during structured follow up appointments. Protocol suggestions effectively utilize the devices 14 day output period and recommends 3 treatment cycles over a 60 day period. The additional treatments are adapted toward addressing each patient’s needs.
Battery powered, and controlled by a microchip, Stivax is minimally invasive and is utilized in an economical timeframe which can be performed in multiple environments. Once peripheral nerve access points are identified, the titanium electrodes of the array are attached to the access points, the waterproof electrodes output can be adjusted, connected, and treatment initiated.
Randomized, controlled studies indicate that the majority of chronic pain patients describe at least 50% reduction in pain and further accumulation of pain reduction in subsequent treatments. Some patients, having solely relied upon narcotic drug therapies, have been able to discontinue the use of these conventional medicines.
A clinical trial by senior consultant Dr. Thomas Payrits on Vagus stimulation in Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) patients supports the effectiveness of STIVAX neurostimulation therapy. In addition to good data quality and a high level patient compliance, study results show a significant rise in the transcutaneous partial pressure of oxygen between the initial examination and the final one.
The other parameters for efficacy and quality of life in the form of ABI SF-36 health surveys and the walking distance test also have similar results and thus confirm therapeutic success as an effective measure for improving symptoms of PAD.
The syndromes that may benefit from Peripheral Nerve or Field Stimulation include:
