A MOTHER’S PASSION & PAIN
SPINAL CORD INJURIES: The highest rate of spinal cord injuries occurs in young adults between the ages of 16 and 30. Car crashes are named as the number one cause for injuries. Although almost all spinal cord paraplegics improve from their initial diagnosis, only 1% completely recovers. (Source: www.sci-info-pages.com).
WHEN DO SPINAL INJURIES OCCUR: The spinal cord does not have to be severed in order for paralysis to occur. The spinal cord can be bruised, stretched, or crushed. It coordinates body movement and sensation, therefore, an injured spinal cord loses the ability to send and receive messages from the brain to the body's system that controls sensory, motor, and autonomic function.
A MOTHER BRINGS HOPE: Neurolumen was founded in 2008 by Shelly Henry, who in addition to being a mother, is a chemist biologist and co-owner of Salus Medical Clinic in Oklahoma City.
Shelly Henry has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry Health Science and has an extensive background in chemistry and laser technology. Her interest in laser technology development was initially inspired by a back injury sustained by her daughter. Her invention not only helped her daughter — who's completely healed and has given birth to her own child — but has proved to be a promising therapy for other pain sufferers as well.
The Neurolumen device is FDA approved and Intertek certified, and it's anticipated that it will soon be covered by insurance and Medicare. The device is designed to replace the manual treatment that the clinic is currently providing to patients.
The Neurolumen device consists of a control unit, six wraps and a battery charger. Each wrap contains two laser diodes, four light emitting diodes and one or two nerve stimulation gel pads - the pads are attached to the wraps and then the wraps are applied to the feet, ankles and legs. The Neurolumen device can be used at home. (Source: www.neurolumen.com)
