Stimpod NMS 460
The therapeutic effect of the Stimpod NMS460 waveform is based on the cellular metabolic activity observed when a neuropathic nerve is subjected to electromagnetic effects caused by pulsed radiofrequency (PRF). The targeted nature of the NMS460 combined with PRF is designed to provide fast onset of relief for the patient with no known side effects.
How does the Stimpod Work?
Typically there are four phases associated with a pulsed radiofrequency procedure:
- A stunning phase, which provides immediate relief.
- Occasionally there may be a phase of post-procedure discomfort.
- A phase of beneficial clinical effect.
- A possible phase of recurrence of pain or paralysis
Nerve location using nerve Stimulation
As with invasive PRF procedures, one big challenge is to locate nerves using PRF. The NMS460 delivers this PRF waveform by means of a non-invasive probe, which is applied transcutaneously to the affected nerve. Many peripheral nerves are combined motor/ sensory nerve bundles and have some locations where they are superficial, which makes them easy to locate using simple nerve stimulation techniques. The power of targeted acoustic waves helps to eliminate the factors that cause uneven surfaces of the skin, leading to a considerable improvement in the skin appearance, including scars and stretch marks. The waves enhance micro-circulation and oxygen supply to the affected areas, this results in an increased blood supply and removal of excess fluid. Acoustic wave therapy also an excellent combination therapy, used to prep the skin before other aesthetic treatments such as HIFU, Fat Freezing and Laser Facials, dramatically improving results from the other treatments your clinic offers.
ASSISTING WITH DIAGNOSIS
Quick Treatment Guide
Treatment with the NMS460 starts by locating the affected nerve. Through clinical evaluation, you can identify the nerve that is responsible for the symptoms, like chronic pain, nerve palsy etc. Once the nerve is located, use your anatomical knowledge to localize the most superficial aspects of the nerve.
Depending on the condition, you will either (A) treat a motor nerve or a sensory nerve within a combined sensory or motor nerve bundle, or (B) treat a pure sensory nerve.
