Med Labs is a U.S. manufacturer of high quality cost effective medical electronic equipment. We specialize in Electronic Muscle Stimulators, Neuromuscular Stimulators, and Nurse Call Switches and Alarms for people with high-level paralysis. Med Labs was started by Philip Norvell in 1969, following a 7 month hospitalization with Guillain Barré Syndrome. He was stricken while a graduate student in Electrical Engineering at University of California, Santa Barbara. He was almost totally paralyzed, only able to move his head slightly from side to side, open and close his eyes and jaw, and move one thumb. He was unable to talk due to severely impaired breathing and the necessary trache and ventilator.
