The phrenic nerve stimulation by implanting electrodes in the diaphragm returns ventilatory movement suitable for patients with neuromuscular disorders that affect the natural breathing capacity. This stimulation caused by NeuRx system increases the capacity of the muscle fibers of the diaphragm muscle, improving respiration.
The device of US firm Synapse ™ stimulates the phrenic nerve and assists in the natural breathing of the patient.
