EMG-triggered electrical stimulation

Among other physiotherapeutic methods, electrotherapy is widely used for rehabilitation after a stroke. EMG-trigger electrostimulation has proven itself to be a very effective method. Activity of certain muscles, such as, for example, the extensor muscles of the forearm, is measured with the electrodes attached to the skin. As soon as the level of integrated electroactivity is reduced to the set value during arbitrary muscle contractions, the muscle is additionally stimulated by electrical impulses. The range of movements is thus restored.

This technique also develops central sensorimotor mechanisms. To practice this treatment, the muscle must be partially paralyzed. The effectiveness of EMG-trigger electrical stimulation is comparable with the "imposed” exercises, whereas the patient has been made repeating exercises continuously.
