What Is the H200 Wireless?

The H200 Wireless Hand Rehabilitation System is a functional electrical stimulation (FES) system that stimulates nerves and muscles to improve hand function.

The brain sends electrical signals through the nervous system to tell the body how to move. When injury or disease disrupts communication between the brain to other parts of the body, muscle weakness or paralysis may result.

The H200 Wireless supports the wrist in a functioning position, helping the user regain hand function and restoring the ability to reach, grasp, pinch, and open and close the hand.


According to research by
Alon et al.

“Sometimes, a muscle and its nerve supply remain healthy but communication from the brain cannot occur due to a central nervous system problem. In these cases, the H200 Wireless can use FES to activate the nerves that control the muscles in the hand and forearm. Programs customized for a user’s specific needs and rehabilitation goals may help the user perform daily activities and also reeducate the muscles over time.1-3

The H200 Wireless helps people who have disorders of the central nervous system that result in functional deficits and impairments of the arms and hands, including:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Certain neurological disorders

Indications for Use:
The H200 Wireless System is an electrical stimulation device indicated for the following uses:

  • Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)
  • Improvement of hand function and active range of motion in patients with hemiplegia due to stroke or upper limb paralysis due to C5 spinal cord injury.
  • NeuroMuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
  • Maintenance and/or increase of hand range of motion; Prevention and/or retardation of disuse atrophy; Increase in local blood circulation; Reduction of muscle spasm; Re-education of muscles.

H200 Wireless is contraindicated in patients with a demand-type cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator or any electrical implant. Do not use the system on a hand where metallic implant is directly underneath the electrodes, a cancerous lesion is present or suspected, or on a hand with regional disorder (e.g., fracture or dislocation) which could be adversely affected by motion from the stimulation. Use caution in patients with diagnosed or suspected cardiac problems or epilepsy.
