Muscle Stimulator LCD

Muscle Stimulator LCD is used to achieve many effects including strengthening and re-education of muscle, reduction of oedema, relief of pain and would repair. A number of different types of named currents are used for stimulating the muscle or nerve directly or indirectly. Muscle Stimulator LCD, one of  the most efficient muscle stimulator, uses various types of Faradic & Galvanic currents for this purpose. Muscle Stimulator LCD produces electrical pulses enter the body tissues via surface electrodes.

Muscle Stimulator LCD

Muscle Stimulator LCD is used to achieve many effects including strengthening and re-education of muscle, reduction of oedema, relief of pain and would repair. A number of different types of named currents are used for stimulating the muscle or nerve directly or indirectly. Muscle Stimulator LCD, one of  the most efficient muscle stimulator, uses various types of Faradic & Galvanic currents for this purpose. Muscle Stimulator LCD produces electrical pulses enter the body tissues via surface electrodes.

Faradic Current is a short frequency therapeutic current which stimulates motor nerves and causes contraction of the muscle to which they supply. Faradic current is not painful to the patient. No form of the Faradic current is used on completely denervated muscles.It can be classified into 2 types:

  • Plain Faradic: This includes single stimulation with no interruption i.e. it is continuous current.
  • Surged Faradic: It is interrupted therapeutic current and it is also called modified Faradic current.

Galvanic Current is a Direct Electric Current. It can also be classified into 2 types:

  • Plain Galvanic: Its direction of polarity is constant and passes continuously in one direction only.
  • Intermittent or interrupted Galvanic: When galvanic current is reduced to zero suddenly from its peak value electronically it is called Intermittent or Interrupted galvanic current.

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator) is a low frequency current modality most widely used as analgesic physiotherapeutic modality. TENS controls pain non- invasively and without narcotics.

Uses of Muscle Stimulator LCD

Faradic current:

  • It is generally used to stimulate ‘innervated’ muscles.
  • Facilitation of Muscle contraction.
  • Re-education of muscle.
  • Neuropraxia of the motor nerve.
  • Pumping action which results in increased venous and lymphatic return.

Galvanic Current:

  • It is used to stimulate ‘denervated’ muscles by non-continuous mode.
  • Used in Neuralgia & Myalgia
  • Preliminary treatment of physiotherapy & circular disorders
  • Neurotids
  • Arthrosis deformities
  • Lontophoresis
