What duty cycle (x:y) is used for NMES spasticity protocol?
What is the Rx time range for NMES strengthening protocol?
Indication or contraindication for NMES: Rx of edema?
Indication or contraindication for NMES: Rx area affected by PVD, venous thrombosis or thrombophlebitis?
What frequency range is used to produce slow twitch contraction (in pps)?
True or false: motor points may move after a denervation injury?
Volitional contraction or e-stim: order of muscle recruitment is random or reversed?
Electrodes should be placed over what for maximum effect of NMES?
Volitional contraction or e-stim: does not utilize synaptic connections, CNS?
True or false: excessive swelling may increase impedence to e-stim?
What does NMES stand for?
What Rx time range is used for NMES spasticity protocol?
Indication or contraindication for NMES: disuse atrophy?
What is the interburst interval (msec) for Russian stim?
What duty cycle (x:y) is used for NMES facilitation protocol?
Volitional contraction or e-stim: recruit progressively larger motor units as greater force is required?
What Rx time range is used for NMES facilitation protocol?
What frequency range should be used for ALL of the NMES protocols?
Prolonged low force e-stim yields effects that are similar to what kind of training (with traditional exercise)?
Indication or contraindication for NMES: pacemaker or AICD?
Indication or contraindication for NMES? Rx area over anterior chest wall?
Motor level stimulation of what may activate inhibitory interneurons at the spinal cord level (renshaw cells), fatigue the mm, & decrease tone?
What kind of circuit is most effective in producing excitation of denervated muscle?
What amplitude is used for NMES spasticity protocol?
What is the carrier frequency (Hz) of Russian stim?
HintAnswer
Intermittent high force e-stim yields effects that are similar to what kind of training (with traditional exercise)?
What waveform would you use for NMES of a denervated muscle?
Indication or contraindication for NMES: Rx area over carotid sinus?
Indication or contraindication for NMES: abnormal tone, spasticity, or contracture
Volitional contraction or e-stim: stimulates peripheral nerve directly
What 2 waveforms are most commonly used for NMES?
What waveform would you use for NMES for small muscle groups?
What amplitude do you want for a NMES strengthening protocol?
Volitional contraction or e-stim: follows size principle?
Stimulating what may produce reciprocal inhibition of the spastic muscle?
What waveform would you use for NMES if you wanted polar effects (besides biphasic asymmetrical)?
What Rx time range is used for NMES ROM protocol?
What law: to stimulate excitable tissue, you must have a sudden variation in current flow (why denervated mm contraction is only seen when circuit is initially established)?

Volitional contraction or e-stim: slow twitch, fatigue resistant fibers recruited first?
What duty cycle (x:y) is used for NMES ROM protocol?
True or false: sensory effects of NMES provide feedback during movement & can enhance volitional recruitment?
What technique should you use for NMES over very small muscle groups?
