    E-stim FES or NMES unit to treat DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

    Hello Community,

    C6 quad here. I was diagnosed with DVT (deep vein thrombosis) about a year ago. My treatment is Xarelto and compression stockings. Would love to utilize FES or some type of e-stim unit to create muscle contractions and activity in my legs in a I hope to reverse this condition. Has anybody had any experience with this? If so, can you suggest an affordable e-stim unit that I could use at home?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    I wonder about the same thing for my damned right foot!
    Been going to wound care with it for over four years and still wounded!
    Seems to me that if I could exercise the dead meat, life might return!

    Why is Estim NOT a current treatment??
