Patients and Carers

Finetech Medical produces a range of long-term implantable neuromuscular stimulators to restore functions after neurological injury.  Neurological injuries can arise from:

As a result of these neurological injuries, people are frequently left with one or more of the following conditions:

  • No control of bladder function - a common result of spinal cord injury (SCI).
  • Dropped foot condition - the dropping of the forefoot due to weakness or paralysis of the muscles down the front of the lower leg.  This becomes particularly apparent in walking when the foot is off the ground and the toes do not clear the floor.
  • Claw hand condition - a condition where the affected hand is gripped in a closed position.  The wrist and fingers stiff and difficult to move.

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) can be used to produce contractions in paralysed muscles.  Finetech Medical’s implants deliver small electrical pulses to the nerves that supply the paralysed muscles, causing them to contract.

An external, wireless device is used to control the implant and its function.

Finetech Medical’s product range consists of:
