My wife has been using one of these following her surgery and I would like to know if anyone has any experiences with this Stim.

  • i used it but i dont know much about it. i did fuse so maybe it helped. i do know my insurance never paid for it but the co. never forced me to pay out of pocket. drs seem to have confidence in it....pete
  • Thanks for that. Actually My wife has just gotten the doc to order X-rays for the first time since she has been using the bone stim. She has worn it for the required 10 hours a day for almost 4 months and we will see very soon if it is working or not. The Company rep who fitted the stim at the hospital said that he had cleared payment with our insurance company and that they had agreed to pay for it.

    It turned out that was not the case. We complained and the rep said that it was agreed but he did not have it in writing and he said that he would work on it. Now the insurance has paid just 3 of the 5 thousand dollars and the stim manufacturer are asking us to pay the rest. That is a disgrace and we are going to tell them that they can have the stim back of swallow the rest of the cost.

    By the way, I noticed that you can buy used versions of this stim on line for $50 to $350, however the catch is that the manufacturer puts only 400 hours usage on the stim out of the factory and what you may be buying on line, may not have any time left or at best very little.

    Sounds lie another scam to me and another lesson to be learned. Just get the insurance company agreement in writing initially yourself before the rep fits it I suppose.

    Take Care
