Axelgaard is proud to offer free educational resources via our video series and our interactive visual guide. The guide is viewable both on desktop and mobile and all of our videos can be watched online or downloaded for offline viewing.
In collaboration with Dr. Lucinda Baker of the University of Southern California’s Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy, Axelgaard’s Electrode Placement Guide is a free, interactive resource for electrode placement. This informative guide features 41 instructional videos, illustration-enhanced electrode placement photos, and relevant information on muscular and neurological anatomy.
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 presentations are PALS® neurostimulation electrodes.
Individual chapters and the full DVD ISO file are available for free download alongside each video for offline viewing.
Electrode placement for isolated wrist extension stimulation. The lateral condyle is marked with the X, and the negative electrode is placed just distal to that marking.
The positive electrode is placed over the tendinous area of the forearm. The stimulated contraction can be seen to be dominantly wrist extension with minimal finger extension and would be graded three out of five muscle grade.
