Stimulation (FES) Technology
2 channel neuromuscular stimulation can be an effective intervention to reduce shoulder subluxation post stroke.
Stimulation Delivery & Electrode Placement:
Using the overlapping mode of the Odstock Microstim 2 channel exercise stimulator –one set of electrodes is placed over the anterior & posterior deltoid muscle and a second electrode set positioned over the middle deltoid & supraspinatus muscle.
The overlapping stimulation mode provides continuous stimulation without fatigue to the stimulated muscle where, as channel 2 stimulation ramps up, channel 1 stimulation ramps down holding the humeral head in the glenoid cavity without fatigue to the stimulated muscles.
Shoulder subluxation, no stimulation Subluxation reduction with stimulation
