How Does it Work. Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation therapy helps to enhance the benefits that you would receive from doing kegel exercise. However, Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation therapy does not require that you use your sphincter and pelvic floor muscles actively.. Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation therapy helps by allowing you to strengthen the tone of your pelvic floor muscles and sphincter, thus allow you to build natural resistance to stress incontinence. Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation therapy uses pelvic floor exercises and muscle awareness in order to help resolve many of the bladder control issues that most sufferers of urinary incontinence experience.. The Pelvic Floor Electrical Stimulation therapy uses high intensity pelvic floor stimulation and high frequency pelvic floor stimulation in order to produce a series of involuntary bladder muscle contractions that can train your body to be able to reduce the urge of the most common types of urinary incontinence, including ...
Various programming techniques are described for medical devices that deliver electrical stimulation therapy that may include mapping between discrete electrical stimulation parameters and a graphical view of the electrical stimulation representing a stimulation zone generated by the parameters. In one example, a method includes receiving, via a programmer for an electrical stimulator, user input that graphically manipulates at least one of size and a shape of a graphical representation of at least one electrical stimulation zone displayed on the programmer, and defining a program to control delivery of electrical stimulation therapy based on the user input.

Electrical stimulation has been suggested as a possible treatment for various functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID). This paper presents a transcutaneous power supplied implantable electrical stimulation system. This technology solves the problem of supplying extended power to an implanted electrical stimulator. After implantation, the stimulation parameters can be reprogrammed by the external controller and then transmitted to the implanted stimulator. This would enable parametric studies to investigate the efficacy of various stimulation parameters in promoting gastrointestinal contractions. A pressure detector in the internal stimulator can provide real-time feedback about variations in the gastrointestinal tract. An optimal stimulation protocol leading to cecal contractions has been proposed: stimulation bursts of 3 ms pulse width, 10 V amplitude, 40 Hz frequency, and 20 s duration. The animal experiment demonstrated the functionality of the system and validated

Spinal cord stimulation is a way to manage various types of pain. A spinal cord stimulator is an implanted device that sends low levels of electricity directly into the spinal cord. Electrical stimulation is a more modern way to stimulate the nerves of muscles to treat pain, and its been used for more than 30 years. Other methods of this type of stimulation are TENS (transcutaneous electrical stimulation) units, peripheral nerve stimulation, and deep brain stimulation. Spinal cord stimulators consist of electrodes, or leads, placed in the epidural space around the spinal cord. ...
The researchers identified evidence of moderate certainty indicating that electrotherapy reduced the use of opioids and that acupuncture delayed opioid use. The clinical trials evaluated multiple approaches to electrotherapy, including a pulsed electromagnetic field and transcranial direct current stimulation. However, the researchers found evidence only of low certainty that electrotherapy or acupuncture improve pain relief.. "Our findings showed that acupuncture pain relief benefits concentrate in the early postoperative phase, but are ineffective in the long run," write the authors in their discussion. "A delay in opioid consumption can be considered a proxy of lower pain levels; high postoperative pain can lead to chronic pain. Our results suggest that acupuncture led to a modest delay in PCA [patient-controlled analgesia] requests, leading to possible benefits in this critical time window.". In addition to the moderate evidence supporting the use of electrotherapy and acupuncture, the ...
A spinal cord stimulator is a device that is implanted to stimulate nerves close to the spinal cord. This stimulation is thought to interrupt the transmission of the pain impulse, reducing or eliminating severe pain. The system consists of electrical leads, which are implanted in the spine, and a transmitter. The transmitter looks like a pacemaker and is placed under the skin in the patients abdomen.. Spinal cord stimulators are often helpful for patients with severe, unremitting pain, which cannot be relieved by other methods. Patients suffering from "failed back syndrome" are often good candidates for this procedure, especially if they have persistent leg pain.. Your physician will carefully review your history and diagnostic tests to determine whether the stimulator is likely to help you. A temporary stimulator (the trial stimulator) is usually placed prior to the permanent implantation of the system to find out whether it will be helpful in controlling the pain.. ...

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. EMS has received an increasing amount of attention in the last few years for many reasons: it can be utilized as a strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes; it could be used as a rehabilitation and preventive tool for partially or totally immobilized patients; it could be utilized as a testing tool for evaluating the neural and/or muscular function in vivo; it could be used as a post-exercise recovery tool for athletes. The impulses are generated by a device and are delivered through electrodes on the skin near to the muscles being stimulated. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. The impulses mimic the action potential that comes from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The use of EMS has been cited by sports scientists as a complementary technique ...

Motorized FES cycling is an example of physical human-robot interaction in which both systems must be controlled; the human is actuated by applying neuromuscular electrical stimulation to the large leg muscle groups, and the cycle is actuated through its onboard electric motor. While the rider is stimulated using a robust sliding-mode controller, the cycle utilizes an admittance controller to preserve rider safety. The admittance controller is shown to be passive with respect to the rider, and the cadence controller is ...

Often the anchor will be palpable under the skin and can cause discomfort. Also, if not anchored securely to strong tissue, it is easy for the sutures to come loose, which could result in lead migration, Dr. Fung said. Some patients have stimulators removed due to pain at the anchor site despite good coverage of their usual pain. Thus the decrease in anchor site pain should help decrease the need for spinal cord stimulator revisions or removals ...
A stroke can impair both motor and cognitive functioning, reducing the automaticity of walking and increasing susceptibility to motor-cognitive interference (MCI). There is also some evidence of an association between susceptibility to MCI and the increased incidence of falls in stroke. Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is commonly used for correction of foot drop due to stroke. At the start of the PhD, studies had shown FES increases walking speed. However, questionnaire-based studies found that users rated a reduction in effort and a reduced risk of tripping or falling as the two most important reasons for using FES. In these studies, the term effort was not defined, but the results from a qualitative study suggested that the questionnaire respondents may have been referring to both physical and mental components. Based on this evidence the following research question was posed "Does FES reduce motor-cognitive interference during gait in people with foot drop following stroke?" The ...
