Wearables better than ever

RS Medical’s patented wearables have been helping patients place pads on difficult to reach treatment areas for more than a decade. The garments improve compliance and effectiveness while allowing patients to take treatments at home.

Today, the wearables are better than ever. As part of our goal of continuous improvement, we collected feedback from thousands of patients as well as healthcare professionals and used it to inform some recent enhancements. Patients should find the improvements result in wearables that are easier to use, and healthcare professionals should see patient compliance improve. Changes include:

  • VELCRO top electrodes increase adherence to garments by 8X and virtually eliminate electrode roll-up during treatment

  • Electrode placement area is expanded to accommodate fine-tuning of pad placements based upon a patient’s muscle structure and is no long restricted to snap locations only

  • Grids allow easy reference and communication about pad location 

  • A single pin cable type now used for all treatment applications, with or without wearables

  • Upgraded zippers on the RS-FBG™ Full Back Garment for enhanced durability

  • Side panel and size labels simplify how to adjust the RS-FBG Full Back Garment to fit properly

  • Added binding around the RS-LBG™ Low Back Garment increases durability

RS Medical wearables are manufactured to provide optimal performance with the RS-4i® Plus Sequential Stimulator. They accommodate up to eight electrode pads to facilitate treatment of large body areas. To learn more, follow this link.
