Continuous wearability supports all-day healing

As clinical and preclinical studies suggest, noninvasive electrical stimulation may be dose-dependent.3,4 ActaStim-S frees patients to go about their day as they benefit from continuous therapy.

Daily insights to help guide recovery

Clear charts and graphs combine auto-captured wear time & relative activity level data with self-reported pain scores. So it’s easy to see when patients get off track — and how to guide them back in the right direction.

CONTINUOUS WEARABILITY

Fits into your patient’s pocket — and their life

CONTINUOUS WEARABILITY

Fits into your patient’s pocket — and their life

As the most compact BGS,5 the discreet and portable ActaStim-S makes it easier for patients to follow their recovery regimen, including:
Wear time — Patients can simply tuck it into a pocket, clip it on their belt, or set it on a nearby surface.
Physical activity — Unlike bulky, older devices, ActaStim-S doesn’t restrict movement, limit postural positions, or require patients to schedule their lives around using it.

ActaStim vs. legacy spinal fusion bone growth stimulators

Returning to physical activity is an important aspect of spinal fusion recovery. Why prescribe a bone growth stimulator that limits mobility? ActaStim-S gives patients the freedom to keep moving while they heal.

Studies suggest the longer patients wear their noninvasive electrical stimulation device, the better it works3,4 — and ActaStim is easy to wear all day long.

More potential healing benefits

Pre-clinical evidence demonstrates that the stimulation delivered by ActaStim-S produced ever-increasing bone cell proliferation throughout the day.3
DAILY INSIGHTS

A new window into patient progress

You can’t be with patients every moment of their healing journey — but ActaStim can. It’s the only system that:
  • Automatically collects accurate, continuous recovery metrics
  • Keeps patients engaged by letting them enter and manage data in the user-friendly ActaStim Sync app
  • Combines all that data into reports that show you at-a-glance whether patients are staying on track

True wear time

ActaStim-S tracks true device wear time, starting only when it’s applied to the patient’s skin.
Some other devices record the amount of time they’re powered on, whether the patient is wearing them or not.

FAQs

What healthcare providers may want to know

Yes. Your local Theragen representative can provide you with reports, and patients may also present ActaStim Sync summary data directly from their phone during follow-up appointments.
Will I have access to the data my patients collect with the ActaStim Sync App?
Initially, your designated Theragen representative will meet with patients to provide instructions on setting up and utilizing ActaStim. During this session, the representative will also assist patients in downloading the digital app, syncing it with the device, and guiding them through its usage on their phone to facilitate a smooth start.
How are my patients fitted with ActaStim-S, and how do they learn to use the digital app?
Yes, we have a dedicated team of specialists who will help with navigating the insurance claims process, optimizing coverage, and tailoring payment plans to patients’ needs. We’re here to unburden your practice in every way possible. That means going above and beyond to support your staff, keeping you in the loop on important details, and implementing your vision for each patient’s recovery from start to finish.
Is there insurance and financial assistance available to my patients?
ActaStim-S records wear time only when the electrodes are on the patient's skin. Some other devices record when powered on — whether being worn or not.  In addition, built-in sensors and a proprietary algorithm capture and measure relative activity during device wear, and, patients can enter pain scores and pain-related activities, adding an essential layer of insight to reports.
What type of data does the ActaStim device record? How do I know if my patient is wearing the device?
