Fully integrated with the longest standing form of FES technology, Xcite opens the door for upper extremity recovery which ultimately leads to greater independence.

FES Bike

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is used to facilitate and improve motor function in neurologically impaired muscles. Research has shown FES to have the following clinical impact:

● Improved circulation and cardiovascular fitness

● Increased muscle mass

● Maintenance or improvement of bone density

● Improve pain and muscle spasms

Gait Training

Synaptic is the only centre in Alberta to use Therastride as an integrated part of its rehabilitation program. Therastride is a full body weight-support treadmill that enables people with varying degrees of mobility to be upright in a weight-bearing position.

The support of Therastride allows the opportunity to correct and improve walking patterns for people with minor to severe deviations in their gait pattern. Reinforcing the principles of high intensity, high velocity, and high repetition, Therastride provides the prime therapy conditions to help the brain reorganize and reconnect with the body.
