Emily is over the moon to have her arm back, courtesy of
Biomove, and she has been sewing today and it is wonderful
to see her with two hands/arms working. Emily had a
wonderful day on 1st June as a bridesmaid, as thanks to
Biomove she wrapped her crutches in material and stayed on
her feet all day - she was so happy.

We received a phone call recently from a gentleman who has a Biomove 3000 and he's reporting significant pain reduction and has improved his walking immensely. It does warm our hearts when we receive calls like this.

What a marvelous machine! I am doing so well with it, I
can't believe it. My doctor is so impressed, he said he
plans to order a unit and do treatments at his office.

I am one of the winners of the free Biomove 3000 you gave
away. The Biomove 3000 works great. I like the operational
method behind this system, your mind always has to be focus
on a muscle movement in order for the Biomove to work for
you. Unlike other muscle stimulators where your mind can
wonder on other things, the Biomove 3000 will only work for
you if you put the effort and thought into your therapy
exercise. The results that I received from using the Biomove
are pretty amazing; I have much more movement and range in
my left hand. Another thing that I noticed, I have more
control over doing more than one thing with my hands. For
instance, if I was trying to do something I would only be
able to focus on just doing that one thing, now I can hold
something in my left hand and think about doing something
with my right hand/arm. The Biomove really helped me to take
more control over my mind.

I am DJ of Memphis TN. I received the Biomove 3000 Wednesday Oct. 26. I applied it to my paralyzed arm Thursday. For the first time in three years, I can turn the pages of my newspaper. I was able to open my fist and use my thumb and a couple of my fingers. It is well worth the price. I thoroughly recommend it for my CVA condition. I just want to thank Cheryl and you from the bottom of my heart!!! Your punctuality and diligence in working with me is greatly appreciated***.

Our experience during this time clearly shows that EMG-triggered muscle stimulation is beneficial for therapy of spastic muscles: (1) The patient shows improvement in a relatively short period of time compared to other treatment technologies (2) Motivation improves in patients who use the Biomove (3) Experience in the past using only muscle stimulation technique, e.g. the ***** rehabilitation system, did not show satisfactory results ...

Of the EMG triggered neuromuscular stimulation units I have been able to try, I like the Biomove* 3000 the best. The instructions are well written and easy to understand. The unit is simple and easy to use. As the literature supporting electrical stimulation for the rehabilitation of the upper extremity in people who have had a stroke gets richer and stronger (another paper was published this month in Physical Therapy), therapists and physicians should pay more attention to incorporating this modality into the intervention plans. The addition of an emg trigger for the stimulation appears to have advantages over the use of the electrical stimulation alone.

Thank you for the Biomove* 3000 system, which was received by me last Monday. I must say it works a treat as after just 1 evening of use on my left arm. The next day I found myself able to move & flex my little finger on my left hand, (what a result!!!), fantastic.
I have been using the unit on my father from the first day that I purchased it while he was unable to raise his hand at all. Now, after 2 months he can raise his hand already 90 degrees. Thank you very much for all your help and thank you for the great machine that you invented / selling / promoting or whatever that is that you are doing with it. Believe me, I have been bragging about your company and Biomove* 3000 so much that people started to call me MR. CURAMOVE !

The apparatus has proved to be very beneficial to the patient with definite signs of improvement. Although the patient is rather elderly, she was a very active person before the stroke. She is very pleased with the apparatus and has no problems using it, to gain maximum benefit. The precise instructions given in the manual have always been strictly followed and all concerned think the apparatus is an extremely useful aid for recovery.
After my stroke I had serious problems using my right hand. I had occupational and physical therapy for about 1 month but was still unable to use my right hand. A further 6 weeks were spent at a stroke rehabilitation clinic but without any significant improvement in the ability to use my hand. I then decided to purchase the Biomove* device and started training 2 times a day. Within 2 weeks I was able to pick up and place large objects. Currently, after a further 2 months, I can even pick up and throw dice again.
Thank you for this great invention!

After suffering a brain attack at the age of 49 I was extremely frustrated not being able to walk anymore without dragging my left leg behind me. After some research on the Internet I located the Biomove* stroke rehabilitation training device, which price was so attractive that I purchased it outright. I have found it the best investment I ever made and am very thankful to be able to walk almost normal 4 months after my stroke.
As a physical therapist myself I was aware of the stroke rehabilitation possibilities, which I had myself now to cope with after a stroke. With the help of extensive muscle stimulation sessions at a rehab center I did regain some spontaneous control but not sufficient to be able to open my hand more than 50%.
Not being able to use my left hand anymore meant being unable to get ever back to work in my profession, which idea alone was unacceptable for me. I decided that muscle stimulation only was not enough to regain the best possible control over my left hand and started using the Biomove* system. Intensive training for about 6 weeks with the Biomove*, returned to a large extend muscle control over my hand and I am now highly motivated to continue training with the system.

As a 52-year-old stroke survivor I suffer from paralysis on my left side. I went trough all standard stroke rehabilitation procedures, which definitely helped me to cope with the disabilities like being able to dress myself, however they failed to restore normal use of my left side. I have started using the Biomove* 2 months ago 3 times a day and I have noticed voluntary movement abilities in my left hand, which I had not before. I am extremely pleased to see that one year after my stroke I am still able to regain some of my muscle control and I am very optimistic about further future improvement.
* Webmaster's note: Some of the users above used the Curamove* 3000 which was the original name for the Biomove 3000. The name of the unit was changed in the text above for clarity. The new name "Biomove 3000" came into being in January 2005.
