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:

NULLElectrode placement for wrist and finger extension combined. The negative electrode of the asymmetric waveform is placed over the finger extension motor point, but enlarged to allow activation of wrist extensors. The positive electrode remains over the tendinous portion of the forearm. In this view you can see the lateral condyle marked, and the stimulated contraction of wrist and finger extension, which would be graded three out of five. Note that the wrist range of motion is slightly reduced because of normal tightness of the finger flexors.
