Restoration Therapies has received 510(k) clearance to market the Xcite functional electrical stimulation (FES)-powered physical therapy system in the United States.

As noted on the Baltimore-based company’s website, the Xcite FES system provides more than 40 FES-evoked task-specific, strengthening, and gross motor training activities in three libraries: upper extremity activities, lower extremity activities, and general activities.

Sequenced stimulation evokes functional movement enabling a patient’s paralyzed or weak muscles to move through dynamic movement patterns, per a media release from the company.

“Repetitive practice of task specific, strengthening and gross motor activities have long been a cornerstone of PT and OT programs for patients with neurological impairments or muscle weakness,” says Andrew Barriskill, CEO of Restorative Therapies, in the release.

“Xcite is designed to be easily integrated into these traditional programs. Xcite enhances the impact of the traditional therapeutic activities that support neuromuscular re-education,” he adds.
