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 soleus activation. The two heads of the gastroc are marked. Using an asymmetric waveform, the negative electrode is placed just below the heads of the gastroc.

The positive electrode is placed above the Achilles tendon. This allows isolated activation of the soleus. During stimulation, the stimulated extremity is slightly un-weighted with the opposite foot placed in front. Heel rise can be seen during stimulation in this position
