STIVAX is a small battery powered electronic device that can be fitted under the collar line. Virtually painless, through a titanium tipped array a randomized and varying series of low frequency electrical impulses are delivered to specific nerves. The initial application is designed to immediately mitigate pain and provide early relief.
Neurostim is a highly effective approach to non-narcotic pain management. The Neurostim is based on Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES). CES stimulates a neurochemical and physiological conditions that are known to relieve pain and depression. Relief is generated by the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates.
Before the procedure the physician will determine the correct peripheral nerve access points for the array placement. Each treatment phase will last approximately 20 days, common protocol will be 3 phases over a total of 60 days. STIVAX is water resistant and generally will not affect your normal routine. You may be scheduled for several follow up visits so the physician can check your progress, comfort, and adjust the output of the device.
