  • transcranial direct curr
  • Transcranial direct current stimulation and physical therapy "could be used alone or together as a combination treatment protocol to improve walking speed and step length among patients with PD," according to the study by Krisna Piravej, MD, and colleagues of King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • One group received a noninvasive brain stimulation technique called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • What's more, using such a minimally invasive technique, called transcranial direct-current stimulation, increased perception that acts of physical and sexual assault were morally wrong. (pennmedicine.org)
  • We're trying to find benign biological interventions that society will accept, and transcranial direct-current stimulation is minimal risk. (pennmedicine.org)
  • New research lead by Hamilton with Sichun Ling, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania, focuses on high-density transcranial direct-current stimulation, a higher-resolution approach that activates smaller portions of the prefrontal cortex like the frontal pole.

  • physiologic
  • BIOTRONIK is reporting initial implantations of its Itrevia HF-T QP cardiac resynchronization defibrillator (CRT-D). The device features the firm's Closed Loop Stimulation physiologic sensor that takes into account the patient's physical activity to adjust the heart rate. (medgadget.com)
  • Appointment
  • At your initial appointment, expect to be taken through a thorough patient history questionnaire (we'll ask questions about your current, past, and family medical history) and physical examination. (johnsonptco.com)
  • Reflex
  • We concluded that 1) the PEIR exists in the cat, 2) mechanical stimulation of the pharynx more strongly activates the PEIR than water, 3) activation of either SLN or GPN afferents attenuates ongoing secondary peristalsis, 4) the receptors mediating the PEIR are located in the pharyngeal mucosa, and 5) both SLN and GPN contribute to the PEIR, but the GPN is the major afferent limb of this reflex.

  • produces
  • Subjecting a eye to a mechanical force would produce the experience of visual information, this is because the nerves are sending visual energy so stimulation produces visual energy. (coursehero.com)
  • parameters
  • The stimulation parameters were passed to a dsPIC33F microcontroller (Microchip, India) driven voltage controlled current source (VCCS) via a universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART). (asme.org)
  • The control software ran on the xPC target and delivered the stimulation parameters via UART to the dsPIC33F microcontroller (Microchip, India). (asme.org)
  • The following is my headache results with electric muscle stimulation (EMS) and builds on a prior blog where I did the same thing but with somewhat different electrode placement, and slightly different parameters programmed into my EMS machines. (absolutept.com)
  • pulses
  • The FES controller was implemented in an xPC target (The Mathworks) real-time kernel, running on a single board computer where the stimulation pattern, i.e., the temporal pattern of current pulses, was computed online based on the surface EMG patterns. (asme.org)
  • nerve
  • Muscles that have a nerve supply (are innervated) can be strengthened and the stimulation can prevent or reverse disuse atrophy, improve mobility, promote circulation, and prevent fibrotic changes. (pamelamorrisonpt.com)
  • control
  • Pain control and reduction is probably the most frequent indication of electrical stimulation usage. (johnsonptco.com)
  • Postoperatively, the threshold force applied by punctate stimulation of the plantar surface of the hind paw decreased significantly on the foot ipsilateral to the CCD (mechanical hyperalgesia) but changed little on the contralateral foot or on either foot for control rats. (biomedsearch.com)
  • examination
  • If you think that you or a loved one could benefit from the care that we provide, contact Advanced Physical Medicine to arrange a thorough examination in our practice. (apmrehab.com)
  • data
  • The outcome data were categorized as physical functions focused on community participation such as "balance function" and "upper & lower function and gait function. (e-sciencecentral.org)
  • order
  • A dsPIC33F microcontroller (Microchip, India) in the input/output (I/O) stage coordinated the switching of the stimulating capacitors with the recording capacitors in order to reject the stimulation artifact. (asme.org)
