Bioness for Upper Extremities

The Bioness H200 Wireless system delivers low-level electrical stimulation to activate the nerves that control the muscles in the hand and forearm, helping individuals regain freedom and independence.  At Atlantic Rehabilitation, we often prescribe this device for patients who have suffered a stroke, brain injury or spinal cord injury or have other disorders of the central nervous system that cause functional impairments of the upper limbs.

Bioness works by supporting the wrist in a functioning position, allowing the fingers and thumb to move efficiently while reaching, grasping and pinching. It is often combined with functional exercises to increase hand function and range of motion, reduce muscle spasms, improve blood circulation, prevent muscle loss, and reeducate and strengthen muscles.
