The Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment  is happy to announce a new partnership program with MedFaxx, Inc.   MedFaxx is one of the oldest electrotherapy companies in the U.S.   Specializing in pain management using electrotherapy devices such as tens units, and the new combination tens and interferential therapy unit, - video on Infrex Plus.    MedFaxx has specialized in helping patients in chronic pain since 1977 and continues to do so.

      For every tens unit, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator, sold MedFaxx will contribute $50 to the GJCAE.  For every Infrex Plus combination tens and interferential unit sold MedFaxx will donate $100 the the GJCAE.   The donation does not apply to Medicare/Medicaid patients.

    The Board of MedFaxx is happy to be part of the GJCAE efforts to raise levels of self confidence and self esteem in youth with arts programming.

MedFaxx Article on Progress Using E-Stim With Paralytic Patients Print E-mail

    As we all know paralysis is a major problem for not only the patient but also for all those who care about the patient.  Electro stimulation is being recognized as being able to help patients overcome certain paralysis.

    In recent years we've seen the quick use of chilling agents to slow down the inflammatory processes  resulting in prevention but that is new and requires knowledgeable clinicians with the necessary equipment.  What is missing is those preponderant situations where the damage has been done and the patient is left paralyzed post injury.

    It has been known for many decades that the electrical reactions in our body are precursors to any chemical changes occurring.  We use electricity to facilitate bones healing and bed sores healing so to use e-stim for assistance in teaching our brain new pathways to accomplish functional movement should not be surprising.  Many times if we use estim as a precursor for chemical changes and then couple that with use of estim for functional motor nerve stimulation it appears we actually are helping the brain learn new electrical discharge patterns that could result in ambulation, movement etc. 

   Here is article recently published at UCLA on getting step closer to helping the patient in paralysis.  This is about progress with paralysis of rats but the basics are advancing.  

   Let's keep our fingers crossed more research done quickly will result in advances.
