The Matrix is a large muscle stimulator used in hospital and rehabilitation settings for post-traumatic pain syndrome, management and symptomatic relief of intractable (LONG STANDING)pain. Adjunctive treatment in the management of post operative pain problems, relaxation of muscles, prevention of muscular atrophy and increasing of local blood supply. It’s piece of medical equipment and Icould get one on E bay if I want to shell out $ 3500-4000. It’s ten times as strong as my NMES machine and it’s 50 times as strong as the TENS. I’d really like to have one but I can’t see spending that kind of money, besides, every day I use all 3 of my machines with results and I know it would work for anyone to do what I’m doing with them.
I also still do my bedtime flex-ercises (as I like to call them), starting with my toes and feet then working my way up my legs to my buttocks, from my stomach muscles flexing and relaxing the whole way up to my neck. Some of these muscles have become so strong that I can flex them visibly. I have an appointment with my rehabilitation doctor on December 12th. This will be the first time I’ve seen him in 18 months. I truly can’t wait to tell him how wrong he was about my recovery. I actually want to be reevaluated to see if he’ll classify me as an incomplete instead of a complete injury.
