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: 3/5
Application Instructions:

This is electrode placement for activation of the triceps muscles which serve as elbow extensors. You can see proximally the mark of the acromium and distally the mark for the olecranon.

The negative electrode is placed in the middle of the triceps; the positive electrode is more distal towards the elbow joint itself. During the stimulation you can see full elbow extension against gravity which would be graded as a three of five muscle contraction.
