What is Stivax?

Stivax (pronounced Steevax) is one of the only FDA approved microchip controlled microstimulation devices for treating back, joint and arthritic pain. The device may only be prescribed and applied by a licensed medical professional. A non-narcotic and minimally-invasive form of neurostimulation, Stivax has been proven to effectively decrease pain, increase mobility and improve the quality of life for patients suffering from syndromes such as:

Improve Walking Distance, Support Wound Healing, Alleviate Pain
Continuous stimulation of the Vagus nerve is aimed to improve microcirculation in extremities, aid healing, and decrease chronic and acute exercise dependent pain.
Device Used by a Trained Physician
Before the procedure, Dr. Jones-Quaidoo will determine the correct nerve access points for the placement. Each treatment phase will last approximately 20 days, and common protocol is 3 phases over a total of 60 days. Stivax is water resistant and generally will not affect your normal routine. You may be scheduled for several follow up visits so Dr. Jones-Quaidoo can check your progress, comfort, and adjust the output of the device.
Diagnosis and Installation of Device Can Be On The Same Day
The device may be installed in same the site visit concurrent with diagnostic testing or during a subsequent visit. Repositioning/replacement can be performed within normal visit durations.
Stimulation Strength Increased or Decreased By Treating Physician
Dr. Jones-Quaidoo may increase or decrease the current level delivered to the stimulation needles as determined by diagnostic requirements and/or patient comfort.
Extended Treatment Period and Water Resistant Electronics
The Neurostimulator will function for 336 hours (14 days) with the replacement of the needles recommended at mid-point.
by Study
Randomized, controlled studies indicate that the majority of patients describe at least 50% reduction in pain and further accumulation of pain reduction in subsequent months. Some patients, having solely relied upon narcotic drug therapies, have been able to discontinue the use of these conventional medicines and extend walking distances.
22% improved their walking distance by 50 – 100%
30% improved their walking distance by 100 – 400%
30% improved their walking distance by 400 – 800%
18% improved their walking distance by > 800%
What Signal Health Patients are saying
This is amazing. I have been able to sleep through the night. I have not been able to do that for years. I usually wake up every 2 hours in pain.
I have had pain for years and I normally take two 10 mg Norco a day. I have been using 7.5 mg now and I only took four for the entire week!
This thing has changed my life! I’ve been able to stop my pain medication and have been able to walk without a limp!
Truly, this thing is amazing!
