About Us

TI ANODE (UK) Pvt. Ltd. is a UK registered company that introduced VitalStim Therapy into the United Kingdom in 2007. VitalStim Therapy is an innovative new medical breakthrough used in the management and treatment of swallowing disorders (dysphagia). It consists of a non-invasive approach using a specialised form of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) designed to treat dysphagia through muscle re-education. The small, carefully calibrated current is delivered by specially designed electrodes which are placed on the outside of the neck. The current stimulates motor nerves in the throat while the patient practices swallowing exercises - together these cause the swallowing muscles to contract. With repeated therapy, muscles are re-educated and strengthened, and the quality of the swallowing function improves. NMES has a long track record in many areas of rehabilitation and has been used successfully for many years by Physiotherapists to treat larger muscles such as those in the legs, arms and shoulders. Our VitalStim equipment is the only equipment of its kind to be approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the USA, and by the European Medical Devices Directive 93/42 EEC.

TI ANODE (UK) has exhibited the VITALSTIM products in May 2008 at the 'REFRESHER' Primary Care Exhibition at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham. In June 2008, the company has exhibited the products in the Association of Speech and Language Therapy in Independent Practice's 'National Speech and Language Therapy Fair'.

TI ANODE (UK) also provided the VitalStim equipment and services in the launching of Vitalstim Therapy at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, Northern Ireland, in 2008.

CHATTANOOGA (the world’s largest manufacturer of rehabilitation equipment for treating musculoskeletal, neurological and soft tissue disorders), a member of DJO Global, USA, has awarded marketing rights to TI ANODE (UK) Pvt. Ltd. to market VitalStim products and services to the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland markets.
