Stroke Rehabilitation

The Vivistim® Paired VNS™ System 

Up to 60% of survivors suffer from persistent impairment of their arm and hand at six months following stroke.  The Vivistim System pairs Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) with upper limb rehabilitation therapy, providing 2-3 times the improvement in arm and hand function compared to therapy alone. (Dawson, J. The Lancet 2021 Apr 24)  

The Vivistim System is indicated for chronic ischemic stroke patients with moderate to severe arm impairment.  To learn more, please click on the button below.
