COVID-19: How Enraf-Nonius equipment can help in the Intensive Care phase

We all can do something to fight COVID-19!

Some extremely good solutions to recover from COVID-19 with the aid of Enraf-Nonius equipment are probably allready within your reach!

Please find herunder how we can assist you to provide the best solution for therapists to allow them to treat their patients - starting at the ICU!

With NMES (Neuro Muscular Electro Stimulation) the patient can be already be prepared for his rehabilitation phase - even when he is mechanically ventilated!!
This early rehabilitation prevents severe muscle loss and helps the patient tremendously when he is discharged from the ICU.
It is a perfect treatment modality and already proven effective for other severe lung diseases.

This NMES consists of a symmetrical biphasic square pulse (with pulse duration of 400 µsec.).
The contraction relaxation cycle is 16 seconds, consisting of:

  • 1 second ramp-up
  • 6 seconds contraction
  • 1 second ramp-down
  • 8 seconds relaxation

First you start with a warming-up phase of 3 minutes at 5 Hz.
Then the frequency is set at 15 Hz (LF-NMES) or 75 Hz (HF-NMES).
The intensity is adjusted tot the individual tolerable value.
The total session cycle is 18 minutes (including the warming up)
