Increased Circulation

Lisa was physically active most of her life before being diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). Before using the MyoCycle, she was losing her ability to walk but after four months of regular use, she's looking forward to walking again.
Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis

My name is Lisa Seychel.  I am 61 years old and live in upstate New York.  Overall, I was very physically active most of my life.  In 1992 I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS).  Except for an exacerbation every couple of years, I was able to remain very active.  However, about six years ago, my MS moved to secondary-progressive.  I have, slowly but surely, been losing my ability to walk.

I have physical therapy twice a week.  A yoga instructor comes to my house once a week.  While these activities are very helpful in allowing me to still be somewhat mobile, I was looking for something that I could do on a daily basis at home. In Dr. Terry Wahls’ book about overcoming autoimmune diseases, I read that she used electrical muscle stimulation to improve her mobility.  Around the same time, I read just one line in an MS journal about Functional Electric Stimulator (FES) cycles that sounded promising. I investigated on the Internet and that’s when I found the MyoCycle.  I sent an email to inquire a bit more about the cycle. The next day, a MyoCycle sales representative, Charlis, called me to discuss any questions I had.

I have been using the MyoCycle for about four months now. It has helped tremendously with the circulation in my legs.

I have been using the MyoCycle for about four months now.  I love it!  It has helped tremendously with the circulation in my legs.  Being less mobile, my calves, ankles, and feet were almost always swollen.  Now I don’t experience any of that.  Plus, it feels terrific to have my legs move in a smooth and steady flow. I am very hopeful that with continued use, I will see continuous improvement with the tightness and spasticity in my legs, so I can return to walking with a strong, steady and more natural gait.

Also, the customer service is excellent!  Whenever I called with a question or issue, it was addressed and resolved very quickly.
