Somatosensory Stimulation

SOMATOSENSORY STIMULATION

Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulation (RPSS) is one of the innovative therapies Dr. Schmoe uses to improve nervous system function.

A type of sensory stimulation therapy, RPSS seeks to help patients recover somatosensory system function lost as a result of stroke, injury, concussion or cognitive aging. The body's somatosensory system relies on touch to experience sensation; sensations of pain, pressure and vibration are all somatosensory experiences. This therapy relies on low-level electrical stimulation to recover sensory loss and, ultimately, to stimulate the senses sufficiently to cause changes in the brainelectro650x400.
