ELECTRIC STIMULATION OF MUSCLE



1 - stimulus, 2 - elasticity, 3 - viscosity.

Figures show examples of records of elastic and viscous parameters during the external through-skin electric stimulation of forearm muscles. The serieses of the electric excitation pulses were applied to the muscles as well as to the ADC for record in computer. The registration of viscoelastic properties of muscles was performed by means of portable "Vibrational Viscoelastometer". The records of this kind allow one to trace the variations in muscular reaction varying the stimulation parameters. They can be used for the investigation of muscle excitability or for selection of stimulation regime during therapeutic influence.
