StimSox™ Technology

StimMed StimSox™ is an external electrical stimulation device that provides a low electrical signal delivered via electrodes (patches) to the patient’s foot. StimSox™ provides Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to the nerves for stimulation. StimSox™ is intended to be used in the home or hospital environment.

How it works

The StimSox™ System is a portable, battery powered foot wrap with an attached stimulator. It is used for immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis and to temporarily increase local blood circulation in healthy leg muscles which reduce pooling of the blood in the veins of the calf. Poor circulation can cause deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) which are serious and sometimes life-threatening medical conditions that can originate in the calf veins.

The StimSox™ is light weight and can easily be applied and worn individually or with a shoe. There are small electrodes that stimulate the muscles of the foot which in turn increase the blood flow in the legs. Specific stimulus parameters can be adjusted by the user to vary frequency, duration, and intensity.
