We are pleased to sponsor the Electrode Placement and Functional Movement series presented by Dr. Lucinda Baker, Associate Professor at USC Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy. These videos provide comprehensive information on the preparation and use of electrodes for effective neurostimulation treatment. All electrodes used in the video presentation are PALS® neurostimulation electrodes. We trust these videos will assist your efforts in providing the most effective treatment to your patients.

DVDs can be ordered by contacting us. Chapter downloads, as well as the full DVD ISO file, are available for free offline viewing via the download links below.

PULSE WIDTH: 300uSEC      HZ: 35      WAVEFORM: Symmetric      STIMULATION GRADE: 2/5
Application Instructions:

Electrode placement for plantar flexion stimulation. The popliteal fossa is marked, and the lateral malleolus is visible. Two large electrodes are used, along with a symmetric biphasic waveform, to allow activation of the whole gastroc soleus complex. The proximal electrode is placed over the origins of both the medial and the lateral gastroc.

The distal electrode is placed over the soleus, where it is exposed. During stimulation active plantar flexion occurs, but because this subject is not weight bearing it would have to be graded two out of five.
