Automatic stimulator for motion correction
Functions and capabilities
Portable system of motion correction is designed for automatic adaptive influence by electric impulses on
paralyzed (paretic) muscles of extremities with the aim of domestic actions relief implementation.
The system represents a wireless transducer with EMG channel, gyroscope and electrostimulator inside.
The transducer is fixed by self-adhesive skin electrodes, as a rule, in the area of projection of a hand's or foot's
extensor muscles. Stimulator is activated under patient's conscious active motions in elbow or knee joint, which are controlled by transducer due to EMG level estimation and gyroscope's indications. At this moment serial electroimpulses influence paretic muscles as far as these impulses reach motion effect of extensor muscles, that let lift a hand, catch an object and so on. Stimulator is turned off automatically after implementation of required action.
All actions with device don't require special wires fastening, and a patient can easily move over a distance.
Microsized parameters and weight.
Off-line working: a patient can use the system by himself and is able to move without difficulty.
Absence of complex wired systems limiting movement.
Adaptive and fully automatic activation of stimulator.
Stimulation report setting depending on personal characteristics of motion pattern and severity level of nerve and muscle structures affection of a particular patient.
Long time activation without recharging.
This system pursues two important aims:
recovery training of paretic (paralyzed) muscles;
help in everyday actions with hand captures of objects and ankle flexion.
Combined with kinesiotherapy and Biofeedback training methods this systems raises rates and quality of motion
pattern motor simulation under pareses (paralises).
Wireless portable system of automatic stimulation can serve as additional method of paretic muscles activation
with botulinotherapy undertaking in the background.
Portable wireless system of tremor analysis
Portable wireless system of tremor analysis is designed to register automatically myographic activity and limb
movements acts under different extrapyramidal disorders in tremor's shape and under other rhythmic dystonic disorders.
The system consists of two or four wireless transducers, each of which has one electromyographic channel and
one gyroscope's channel.
The transducer is fastened on skin surface with the help of self-adhesive electrodes (as a rule, in the projection of
extensor and flexor muscles) and upon radio channel transmits in the computer a high quality jamproof myographic signal and gyroscope's records of three projections in real time. Specialized software provides visualization of both myogram and actography signals and results of primary analysis mathematical methods: power spectrum, rhythmography, auto-correlation analysis, averaging, integral EMG and trend reflection in the course of time.
All the records are saved in database and are accessible for a user to retest and to print at any time.
As a rule, the system allows to undertake following important tasks:
tremors types diagnostic;
analysis of extremities rhythmical motions (for example, while walking)
recovery training-control of dystonic (paralyzed) muscles activity.
The system of tremor registration is easy-to-use and electrical saved (power from mini battery).
This system can be distributed together with Biofeedback- training. It allows to raise rates and quality of motion
pattern motor modeling under pareses (paralyses) and dystonia.
Portable wireless system of tremor analysis can be an additional method of muscles activity analysis with
botulinotherapy in the background.

Multi-channel online record of athlete's muscle activity while exercising;
Express estimation of muscle activity quantity while training.
Estimation of individual characteristics of muscle activity upon power, movements speed (blows, pushes), coordination and fatigability parameters.
Settings and abilities
Kinesiological system for sports medicine
Wireless transducers are convenient technical device to register athlete's biopotencials while exercising. Lack of wires allows to minimize motional artifacts and to analyze in details those processes, examination of which would be inaccessible for researcher under using wired devices.
Foremost transducers are directed toward muscle biopotencials registration (EMG) for their activity monitoring while moving. It is possible to register ECG parallel EMG, and it's possible to get information about body and extremities position with the help of accelerometer and gyroscope readouts.
A wireless transducer is multi-functional device, which can be applied in different designs to register electromyographic, electrocardiographic and others biopotencials. In addition, it can be applied to generate electrostimulating influences.
Wireless biofeedback complex
Wireless biofeedback complex is a set of four universal wireless transducers, each of which provides registration
of electromyogram (EMG), electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG), breath and galvanic skin potential depending on required biofeedback modality.
The system supposes training upon four selectable set channels at the same time. Frequency band and
amplitude ranges for each channel are set by program.
An advantage of wireless registration is minimization of motion artifacts and, as a consequence, providing of
body free position of research subject including the ability of movement.
Defined transducer’s fastening are supposed for different biofeedback modalities :
Disposable self-adhesive electrodes and pressure belt for EMG, ECG, breath and galvanic skin potential.
Special belt (in the form of head bandage) with electrode system for electroencephalogram.
Wireless complex and biofeedback system “Kinesis” have a common software.
Transducers with fastening elements can be added both as additional accessories for “Kinesis” system and in the function of individual product.
Software has the following abilities:
Treatment of motion complexes
Signals spectral estimation
Exposure of fast and slow waves
Cluster analysis of muscle activity
Exposure of athlete's individual characteristics
Rise of work-out session effectiveness
Movement patterns classification
Wireless transducer are convenient devices to register facial muscles activity aimed to
estimate reciprocal regulation, functional interrelations of symmetric antagonistic, agonistic and synergetic muscles during the process of mastication and lower jaw bone motion.
Lack of wires allows to get qualitative record, steady to the motion artifacts, that is a guarantee
of auto-sensed mastication areas algorithm's, muscles' tension and relaxation successful operation. Transducers are fastened to the face by means of glue layer of disposable electrodes and they don't require additional fastenings.
The main aim of transducer is to undertake a wide range of researches and therapies, including EMG registration and analysis, biofeedback training undertaking upon EMG and ECG rates, muscle activity monitoring for sports Medicine, undertaking of diagnostic and rehabilitational procedures in kinesiology, tremor test and so on.
The wireless connection between the registration module and visualization device (PC, smartphone, tablet) is provided via a radio channel (2,4 GHz or Bluetooth LE).
An advantage of wireless registration is minimization of motion artifacts and, as a consequence, providing of body free position of research subject including the ability of movement.
Different designs of transducer in conjunction with corresponding software represent itself separate products
