More than 5.6 million Americans and over 50 million people worldwide suffer from congestive heart failure, and heart disease is the leading cause of death both in the U.S. and worldwide. The cost of hospitalization and treatment for heart failure is twice that of all forms of cancer combined. While there are many available treatments with both drugs and devices, not all patients return to a normal lifestyle as a result of those treatments. Myoblasts represent the most advanced cell therapy that can effectively be targeted to improve the health of this patient population.
Welcome to MyoStim
MyoStim is a medical device company focused on Delivering Heart Muscle Regeneration, Blood Flow stimulation and Wound Healing products producing angiogenesis, myogenesis and arteriogenesis results, through implementation of MyoStim’s innovative and patented electro-stimulation technologies. The body has its own Bioelectric System. This system influences wound healing by attracting the cells of repair, changing cell membrane permeability, enhancing cellular secretion through cell membranes and orientating cell structures. MyoStim’s patented products augment these natural processes.
The flagship device, an implantable heart repairing CRT/ICD, was developed with the participation of leading scientists in cardiology. MyoStim’s patents replicate the body's own natural method of creating a heart from stem cells. In addition to the potential to create landmark medical devices in the field of cardiology, our electro-stimulation patented technology has been shown to have significant benefits in recruiting stem cells, proliferating stem cells and stimulating blood flow to accelerate wound healing, critical in the fight against multiple life threatening and impairing conditions.
The MyoStim Solution
MyoStim has emerged as a result of the founders’ passion to advance patient treatment. Unlike existing treatments, MyoStim products do not simply maintain the patient’s heart cells to temporarily improve cardiac function; rather the MyoStim technology is able to:
• Rejuvenate dead cardiomyocytes (beating heart muscle cells) thus offering added heart functionality immediately and potentially long-term.
In addition to the benefits afforded heart failure patients, the MyoStim technology is also effective in:
• Cell proliferation for Scientific Research and
• Commercial cell production operations
The Wound Healing Device / Limb Salvage Device is designed to improve patient care for:
• Critical limb ischemia (low blood flow in the legs).
• Slow healing wounds
• Diabetic foot ulcers.
• Bed ulcers.
• Varicose veins treatment.
