Mini E-LINK “Case Histories”

Case One
“I have been using the Myo-X with a young chap with an undefined neuropathy. He had a stroke in 2007, regained his function, but remained aphasic and only had the use of his left hand, but after becoming severely ill in January this year, he lost the power in the remainder of his body and was completely dependent. Recovery was minimal, and work between February and May saw an improvement in his left shoulder and elbow with a very slight wrist improvement. However, after one session with the Myo-X, a significant improvement was visible and he was very pleased. He was able to stabilize his wrist to a greater degree than anytime previous. Now, strength rarely appears miraculously and what I think happened is that the Myo-X taught him to find and isolate the movement in one session, and made him stop recruiting unnecessary movements of shoulder and wrist. It was a great result in a very short space of time and we continue the sessions.”

Case Two
“It was good to read the interesting clinical experience you included. I had a smaller scale discovery moment with a patient yesterday too. A relatively routine thumb proximal phalangeal fracture with tendon adhesions reducing the end ranges of movement & my plan was to strengthen & improve the maximum ranges of the MCP & IP joints. However, my patient could do quite well with the hard work at the ends of range but we discovered together that her main problem is actually more the subtle control of her mid range. I am not sure any other treatment method would have discovered this element of the problem & it has taken us in a new treatment direction.”
