Multi-Modality Interferential Stimulator

VQ OrthoCare manufactures two non-invasive, non-addictive neuromodulation devices, the OrthoStim4 and the SurgiStim4, which provide treatment for pain, spasms, swelling, muscle weakness, lack of circulation, and compromised range of motion. These neuromodulation devices are specifically programmed to target the needs of your injury or condition.

  • Non-narcotic
  • Non-addictive
  • Noninvasive
  • Customized protocols
  • Target multiple symptoms
  • Web-based compliance reporting
  • Sterile electrodes for post-surgical application
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Reduction in Medications

In addition to helping to manage pain, many patients report that neuromodulation significantly reduces their pain medication usage and dosage, as well as recovery time and costs.

I was in a motorcycle accident and solely relying on prescription pain relievers to manage the pain from a broken shoulder and leg. My doctor prescribed an OrthoStim device. Once I began using it, I was very excited to be able to reduce my intake of pain medication. Thank you for informing me about the benefits of this product.
