See What Doctors Have to Say About our ReBuilder Devices!
On behalf of the Oncology Rehabilitation team and the Medical Staff at Midwestern Reginal Medical Center, I want to personally thank you for inviting and developing the ReBuilder System, a fabulous medical device to help alleviate the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy. In the past, we have used traditional physical therapy electrical stimulation devices such as traditional TENS and Interferential Current (IFC), but the ReBuilder System provided our patients with Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) the best and longest lasting pain relief while undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
From 2005 to 2007 we treated 124 cancer patients with CIPN who were actively undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Midwestern Regional Medical Center of which 40% reported a 30% to 50% reduction in their pain scale, 53% reporting 10% to 20% reduction in their Pain scale, and 3% reporting 50% or more reduction in their Pain scale and only 4% reported no change.
With these remarkable results (96% success rate) the ReBuilder System is now being used across all four CTCA sites in Tulsa, Phoenix, Philadelphia, and Chicago – touching and helping more oncology patients relieve their CIPN symptoms. This calendar year alone, between all four sites, we have treated over 300 patients successfully. We believe in your product’s ability to alleviate CIPN symptoms for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Patients have reduced or stopped taking pain medication for CIPN.

I have 4 disc herniation’s, scoliosis, and Neuropathy. I have been using Rebuilder Medical products for over 6 years. I personally use the water treatment plus the ReBuilder 2407 model for my own Neuropathy 2-3 times per week in my office. I take my machine anytime I travel and use the sticky pads. If I am able to sit or lie down, I put one pad on the bottom of each foot and it automatically turns off after 30 minutes. I am able to be active because of this equipment. It is definitely cost-effective. I recommend this treatment in my office with all my Neuropathy patients with great results of less pain, decreased numbness, ability to stand or walk, no more waking up at night. I would recommend the ReBuilder equipment to any doctor wanting to help more people with Neuropathy.

In June of 2013, Centra began offering ReBuilder, a cutting-edge rehabilitation treatment designed to stimulate the nerves and muscles. For neuropathy patients, the treatment offers a new lease on life.
People want to get better and they want their lives back. The ReBuilder program typically brings success within five to six treatments… eight of 10 patients have experienced positive results from the treatment. Nearly everyone sees some change. Patients are able to stop taking pain medications and live a much higher quality of life. Neuropathy seems hopeless, but the ReBuilder program offers drastic changes to many patients and is really reshaping lives.

We have been using your ReBuilder® System for the last four months, and I wanted to express our experience to date. We have found that the device works very well both in the TENS mode and the EMS mode. The electrodes on your system are unique, and we feel that you have solved the common complaint of electrode burns when used for TENS applications. Using the system for EMS applications begins to show its real utility for a sports medicine practice. The impulses ramp up in intensity gently, enhancing patient compliance. Although we realize that the system is designed primarily for the patient to be able to use at home, it has significant utility in a professional setting as well.
The real value of the system, however, lies in its “pulsed” mode. For those patients needing or desiring to increase the blood flow to their lower legs, it will work magnificently. I’m almost embarrassed to describe its utility in these terms, but you’ve really got a winner here. The primary use in the geriatric patient who really needs the large control knobs and the ease of the twin compartment foot bath mode of electrode placement. (We here have shortened our description to “bring out the buckets!”) Our patients report feelings of relaxation and a lowering of their anxiety levels.
By the way, the price is probably too low. Most equipment that we use is in the $5,000 to $6,000 range and only performs a single function. If you can really afford to offer it at $850, you should be able to sell all you can make.

Please be advised that as a Board Certified Family Practitioner interested in keeping my patients healthier and less reliant on surgical procedures, I have been using the ReBuilder for my Patients since the latter part of 1987. Many of my patients suffer from chronic pain syndromes, osteoarthritis, coronary heart disease status post-by-pass surgery, diabetes mellitus with peripheral neuropathy, and venous vascular disease.
Patients who have had bypass surgery many times have had portions of their greater saphenous vein surgically removed which can decrease venous blood flow in the lower extremities and can cause pain syndromes from compromised circulation. Research is already well established regarding the efficacy of the TENS device and pain control. Recent research is growing regarding its potential help with venous disorders.
I prescribe the ReBuilder for my patients with the above conditions and have found it to provide the following benefits:
- Reduce drug dependence
With pain being controlled with the ReBuilder, the need for pain medication is reduced, decreasing the likelihood of long-term drug dependence.
- Enhanced venous pump action
After surgery, collateral circulation is enhanced by exercise. However, many times it is painful to walk. The ReBuilder stimulates the calf muscles to contract more efficiently than normal exercise because of the isometric form of stimulation and the waveform used. Improved blood flow then is able to carry away lactic acid and other metabolic byproducts.
- Enhanced healing of venous ulcers
Better venous flow is achieved through calf contraction.
- Reduce edema
The lymphatic system circulates and carries proteins which can cause edema. Edema is reduced with the ReBuilder.
- Accelerate healing
Due to the greatly enhanced blood flow by the ReBuilder healing of surgical wounds has been much faster.
- Peripheral Neuropathy secondary to diabetes mellitus may result in gangrenous infections.
If attended rapidly, many of these patients can be improved so as to prevent them from surgical intervention.

He recently tried a ReBuilder Unit on both feet over the last 30 days, which he found to be beneficial. He typically uses the ReBuilder unit twice a day for 30-minute intervals. His neuropathic foot pain decreased from 8 on a scale of 10 down to a 4 or 5. Although the ReBuilder unit did not relieve all his pain, he does report substantial clinical improvement. I did prescribe him a ReBuilder unit with conductive socks with conductive lotion. He has been using the ReBuilder unit along with sock conductive garment model 55100. I did complete his certificate of medical necessity.
Neurological Examination: He is a pleasant 67-year-old man in no apparent distress with normal cognition and speech patterns. Cranial nerves II through XII were intact. Motor examination shows normal strength in both upper and lower extremities both proximally and distally except for left deltoid graded 5-. Left-hand grip strength was moderately weak and right handgrip is also mildly weak related to previous cervical myelopathy. There is mild left dorsiflexion weakness graded 5-. Sensory Examination revealed moderately reduced vibration in both great toes with intact proprioception. Pinprick was normal in the feet, but he did not report allodynia at the base of the toes bilaterally. Coordination and gait were normal. Reflexes were graded at 3 in the right BR, but otherwise two in upper extremities. Knee reflexes were graded 3 and ankle reflexes were graded 3 and ankle reflexes were absent. No Babinski signs were elicited.
- Bilateral foot neuralgia with probable idiopathic peripheral neuropathy.
- Cerebrovascular disease with previous thalamic infarct.
- Cervical myelopathy status post decompressive surgery.
- History of left cubital tunnel.
- ReBuilder unit with conductive sock garments specified above.
- Continue medication at the current doses.
- Aspirin prophylaxis.
- Neurological follow-up in three months, but contact me with any changes in his condition.
