Malta - Bioness helps overcome Multiple Sclerosis



What is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis (known as MS in short) is a disease which damages the communication between the brain and spinal cord. It occurs when myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This Disease usually occurs in young adults and is most common in the female population.

MS stops the electrical signals from the brain being sent to the spinal cord and therefore other parts of the body due to the fact that with this disease, one’s own immune system attacks the myelin which holds the axons which carry these signals.

Although a lot is now known about the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, till now no one has been able to determine the cause of the disease. Often patients suffering from MS develop symptoms which limit their movement and therefore make day to day activities hard to overcome.

Is there a Cure for Multiple Sclerosis?

To date there is no known cure for Multiple Sclerosis and this is where the Bioness Systems come into play. Bioness Inc has developed 3 main systems the NESS L300, NESS L300 PLUS and the NESS H200 WIRELESS to assist patients of various illnesses such as MS to overcome their illness and live a more fulfilling life.

The systems all work similar to one another by sending electrical impulses to the nerves through an array of electrodes all controlled by various sensors and an intricate algorithm programmed into the system.

The Bioness systems can assist patients suffering from symptoms of multiple sclerosis obtain freedom of movement, better balance and gait movement and hand function. Although this is not a cure for multiple sclerosis it a step in the right direction since people with multiple sclerosis can lead a more active, independent and fulfilling life.

How can the system work to aid with therapy for Multiple Sclerosis?

The system is programmed to be able to be set to 3 different modes, Setup Mode where a trained therapist programmes the system to work according to the patients needs to ensure fluid and almost natural movement of the limbs, Gait or Movement Mode where are the most used modes to allows patients to move and interact with objects in their daily lives and finally Training Mode which allows the user to engage in other activities such as watching TV while the system stimulates the muscles and nerves and therefore build up muscle mass further strengthening the patients limbs.
