Waveform-parameters-on-comfort-during-transcutaneous-neuromuscular-electrical-stimulation, twenty-three females between the ages of 19 and 35 were studied in order to compare the effects of variations in pulse duration, waveform symmetry, and source regulation on comfort during quadriceps surface stimulation at amplitudes necessary to produce 27 nm torque. stimulation parameters compared were: 1) 50 and 300 μs pulse durations, 2) asymmetrical and symmetrical biphasic waveforms, and .... Effects of waveform parameters on comfort during transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation. bowman br, baker ll. twenty-three females between the ages of 19 and 35 were studied in order to compare the effects of variations in pulse duration, waveform symmetry, and source regulation on comfort during quadriceps surface stimulation at ..., the stimulation parameters used in applying snmes are important in optimising treatment outcome and maintaining subject comfort. the parameters include: stimulus waveform shape, pulse duration, pulse frequency, pulse amplitude, ramp-up time, ramp-down time, on time and off time. 1.1.1..

The factors that affect the extent of sensory fiber and receptor stimulation and, in turn, the comfort of the sensation include electrode location, electrode size, and stimulation parameters such as stimulus waveform, pulse duration, and the frequency of stimulation pulse repetition., bowman b.r. and baker l.l. (1985) effects of waveform parameters on comfort during transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation. ann. biomed. eng 13, 59-74. abstract: twenty-three females between the ages of 19 and 35 were studied in order to compare the effects of variations in pulse duration, waveform symmetry, and.

In sports medicine, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (nmes) has been used for muscle strengthening, maintenance of muscle mass and strength during prolonged periods of immobilisation, selective muscle retraining, and the control of oedema. a wide variety of stimulators, including the burst-modulated alternating current (‘russian stimulator’), twin-spiked monophasic pulsed current and ..., transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (nmes) can be applied as a complementary intervention to regular exercise training programs. a distinction can be made between high-frequency (hf) nmes and low-frequency (lf) nmes..
