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: 3-/5
Application Instructions:

Electrode placement for thumb opposition. Although the thumb opponens is a medial muscle, it is easily accessed off the lateral border of the first metacarpal. The positive electrode is placed over the extensor surface. Activation of the stimulation causes thumb opposition. This subject demonstrates some voluntary finger flexion. This stimulated thumb opposition would be graded three minus out of five.
