Education

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:

Electrical stimulation of the submerged foot. Electrical stimulation can also be used with tetanic contractions to manage edema. In this application the negative electrode is placed into the water, along with the subject's foot. The positive electrode is placed distal on the lower leg over the tendons. When only the toes are in the water intrinsic toe flexion can be seen. As the foot is submerged further into the water, activation of toe flexors as well as the muscles of the arch of the foot can be seen. Please note that once the electrode has been submerged the conductive and adhesive gel will float off of the electrode. The electrode can be used again for submersion, but it can not be used for stimulation directly on the patient's skin.
