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 hand. Electrical stimulation can be used to manage edema in a water environment. The negative electrode is placed into the water, along with the edematous extremity. A positive electrode is placed, in this case, on the upper forearm. Low frequency stimulation of one twitch per second is used, with the goal of muscle pumping the edema out of the extremity. If the subject removes the hand from the water, the quality of the stimulation decreases. As the hand is re-submerged, activation of the intrinsic muscles of the hand 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.
