A step forward in
muscle stimulation therapy

The Muscle Stimulation System 110

The Muscle Stimulation System 110 provides comfortable and effective stimulation to the quadriceps, and easily integrates with clinical workflow

Features and Benefits

  • Provides simultaneous treatment to both quadriceps
  • Simple application: peel from release liner and apply
  • Large, bright touchscreen display with intuitive interface

Start treatment today

  • niveus medical devicesApply
    The design of the Stimulation Array Pads integrates six electrodes into a single pad.
    With landmarks clearly labeled, the pads are quickly and easily applied to the quadriceps as a single unit.
  • niveus medical devicesConnect
    All it takes is one connector for each pad. Don’t worry about left or right; the system automatically identifies the leg. We take muscle stimulation and make it simple.
  • niveus medical devicesTreat
    Quickly follow the user interface from left to right. Enable stimulation output and easily calibrate therapy to the individual patient. Press Start—that’s it. The system then provides therapy to the patient for the specified duration.

Example Clinical Applications
of Muscle Stimulation

There are more than 20 positive studies, covering more than 800 patients, that demonstrate the clinical impact of muscle stimulation in hospitalized patients.

Clear benefits have been demonstrated in pulmonary, cardiovascular, neurology, surgical, orthopedic, and other cohorts of patients. See the selected list of references below.
