Specific Electronic Implant (Persistent)Updated 2 years ago

While we are not familiar or trained on that medical device, If you have been cleared to use other forms of electrical stimulation such as a TENS unit, you should be cleared to use the NeuroMD device.

Generally it is safe to use as long as the stimulation is not near the implant.

Patients with electronic implants are generally excluded from use of electrical stimulation due to the potential electromagnetic interference may result in implants malfunction.

Here is a study that evaluated this and found NMES safe to use with an electronic implant:

Legally we are not able to advise using the device.
