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.

Infrex Electrical Stimulation To Reduce Pain & Restore Function  

     The Infrex is used for voluntary neuromuscular facilitation by supplementing the patient's volitional movements with sensory stimulation.    Due to pain many patients will not voluntarily set their quads following knee replacement    surgery or,  radical menisectomy,  thus prolonging function restoration and creating additional pain.    The Infrex FRM will help the patient remove the "guarding" tendency and overcome the reluctance to resist the voluntary movements.

   The Infrex recruitment of additional muscle fibers, large and small, in concert with the patient's pain free efforts help reduce rehab. time and often, after 1 or 2 very short sessions, reeducates the patient on how to receive total pain free volitional control.   The electrical stimulation provides sensory input to the patient if there is neural integrity and correct form is achieved for proper function. 

    Due to the inverse relationship of motor nerve firings, from largest diameter to smallest diameter, from closest to farthest fibers, from the Infrex stimulus, the recruitment of more muscle fibers results in reduced pain and time  so the patient can gain full pain free function.
