Electrical Stimulation used for Medical purposes has been around for over a hundred years. Some Stimulators can be useful for pain control, others for rehabilitation. High Volt Galvanic Stimulators can be useful for both.
The Study posted on our page show that HVGS can be helpful to control pain when it results form Diabetic Neuropathy. Keep in mind, not every patient gets good results The cause of the pain can vary form patient to patient. So the results may vary too.Click here for a clinical study.
The Micro-Z High Volt Galvanic Stimulator
The Micro-Z is a small, lightweight stimulator that allows patients to receive electrotherapeutic treatment in comfort. It is programmed for two treatment protocols, the first is a 30-minute daytime treatment and the second is an eight-hour nighttime treatment that is administered while the patient sleeps. The Micro-Z can be used to treat acute and chronic injuries, to treat sources of pain, to increase circulation while improving range of motion, and to minimize soft tissue atrophy and injury. Its compact size and ease of use increases patient compliance and when used with Prizm’s Electro-Mesh, Silver-Thera, and Stim-Support garment electrodes, the Micro-Z offers opportunity for rapid patient recovery.
One of the most frequently treated injuries from the workplace in the U.S. is carpal tunnel syndrome, comprising 48% of work related injuries. Current treatments include wrist splinting, anti-inflammatory drugs, or even surgery. These treatments can cost in excess of $25,000. Prizm’s products provide a cost effective non-surgical alternative to traditional medical methods of treatment.

The Electro-Mesh™ Garment Electrodes, Silver-Thera™ Stocking Electrodes, and the Stim-Support™
Orthopedic products take an innovative path to pain relief and healing. Prizm’s products uniquely differ from other stimulation products on the market by enhancing circulation in conjunction with soft bracing. (The Electro-Mesh Garments are also available without the bracing units as well.) This is achieved by using a low energy level micro-stimulation which not only increases circulation, but also reduces swelling, thus dually treating the pain sources. The garment electrodes with the Micro-Z™ not only provide increased circulation to the affected area but also helps increase range of motion while increasing muscle function. Prizm’s products have shown to be effective in treating sports related injuries, idiopathic pain, and chronic pain. Insurance coverage for various injuries varies from one insurance company to another. We can provide help to see what is covered for you and what is not.
The Electro-Mesh Gloves
Comes in five sizes: x-small to x-large. The fabric is actually woven with silver so it provides electrical stimulation to the entire surface of the hand. This is much better than standard electrodes which cover only a small area. The electrodes also lose their ability to stick after a few weeks of use. The Electro-Mesh Gloves and Sleeves last for years if properly cared for. The garments are great when you have a large area that needs to be stimulated. Or you have a patient that cannot tolerate a sticky electrode.
The Electro-Mesh Socks
Comes in three sizes: Small to x-large. The feet are typically a difficult area to use standard, sticky electrodes. The Electro-Mesh Socks are just like a regular sock. They look and feel the same. But, they provide stimulation to the entire foot. Both the Gloves and the Socks need a second garment to work. As one connection on the garments is a positive connection, and one is a negative connection.
The Electro-Mesh Back Brace
This incorporates the Electro-Mesh material, with a firm back support. Comes in five sizes.
- Small fits 28″-32″ waist
- Medium fits 32″-36″ waist
- Large fits 36″-40″ waist
- X-Large fits 40″-44″ waist
- XX-Large fits 44″-49″ waist
