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 flexion. The medial condyle is marked with the X. The negative electrode of the asymmetric waveform is placed is placed relatively high towards the medial condyle. The positive electrode is over the flexor surface of tendons. During stimulation you see pure wrist flexion without finger flexion. Good balance between radial and ulnar sides. This would be graded as a three out of five muscle contraction.
