STIM IT - don't lose it - the diaphragm!

Up to 50% of the main breathing muscle (diaphragm) is lost in the first days of mechanical ventilation. Breathing without support may become difficult. STIMIT and the Exercise Physiology Lab explored different avenues to improve return to spontaneous breathing. STIMIT's device stimulates the diaphragm non-invasively aiming to tackle this problem. >website
