EMG-triggered Electrical Stimulation

Another intuitive method of triggering electrostimulation is to use the remaining small myopotentials of the paralyzed muscle groups that occur when attempting to perform a movement. If an individual activity threshold is exceeded, a stimulation is triggered that enables the desired movement.  In comparison to dynamic controlled stimulation, EMG-triggered stimulation focuses on the patient’s movement intention and less on controlling movement.

With KT Motion, both approaches can be combined in one application for the first time.
