MyndTec – Stroke Rehab Technology Aims To Speed Healing

Via MDIOnline – Watching someone who has suffered a stroke try to perform everyday actions such as walking down the sidewalk or even bringing a cup to their lips can serve as a sobering reminder of how fragile full and robust health is, and also serves as an inspiration for those dedicated to improving the lives of those patients.

Steven Plymale, recently named CEO of Toronto-based MyndTec, said his reaction to watching videos of patients using the company’s MyndMove functional electrical stimulation (FES) rehabilitation system was one of the reasons he joined MyndTec.

“They are very compelling,” Plymale said of the demonstration videos,  “and, to be honest with you, were one of the visceral reasons why I took this job. It really is technology we have to get out there.”

MyndMove’s potential market just increased exponentially with recent 510(k) marketing clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Plymale said MyndTec has already sent several units of the MyndMove system—which uses an eight-channel electrode array programmable with more than 30 protocols to specifically target muscles in the arm—to a partner institution in the U.S. for a pilot.
