COMPARISON OF THREE TYPES OF NEUROMUSCULAR ELECTRICAL STIMULATION ON FATIGABILITY IN THE QUADRICEPS MUSCLESDownload
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) can produce contractions of paralyzed muscles to improve function and reduce secondary complications for individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI). NMES is typically delivered through a single pair of electrodes over a muscle belly at a stimulation...
Functional outcomes of pharyngeal stimulation in patients with dysphagia after surgical treatment for head and neck cancerDownload
Head and neck cancer patients often experience swallowing disorders placing them at risk for aspiration and malnutrition. This study examined the effects of electrical stimulation to the pharyngeal wall on swallowing function in post-surgical head and neck cancer patients. Swallowing of liquid,...
Investigation of intermittent electrical stimulation as a potential prophylaxis against the formation of deep pressure ulcers after spinal cord injuryDownload
Deep tissue injury (DTI) is a severe form of pressure ulcers resulting from ischemia and mechanical damage due to unrelieved pressure. Despite many preventative methods, none so far has significantly reduced the incidence of DTI. The use of a novel method of pressure ulcer prevention,...
