The Microstim neuromuscular stimulator is intended for the exercise of weak or paralysed muscle. It is designed to be simple to use with the minimum necessary user controls. The output stimulation intensity is ramped at the beginning and end of each cycle by pulse width modulation to produce a comfortable sensation. Powered by a standard 9V battery, this makes it ideal for use at home for regular exercise.
