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: Asymmetric      STIMULATION GRADE: N/A
Application Instructions:

Electrode placement for plantar flexion stimulation dual channel activation of the gastrocnemius muscles. The popliteal fossa is marked. An asymmetric waveform is used. The negative electrodes are placed over the medial and lateral gastrocs.

The positive lead from both channels is placed into the dual leadwire electrode positioned at the distal most component of the gastroc muscle. During stimulation the extremity is slightly un-weighted with the opposite foot placed forward. Activation of the gastroc results in heel rise with knee flexion.
