Demand for Electrostimulation Devices Retains High Growth Scale, Finds Kalorama Information

Electromuscular stimulation (EMS) of muscle tissue can aid in the recuperation of overworked muscles. Electrostimulation of nerves and muscles has also proven useful in rehabilitation from stroke or injury to the spinal cord. Neural prosthetics, programmed electrostimulation aided by computer signal processing, offers promise for amputees and the blind.
According to the report “Markets for Electrostimulation Devices (Neurostimulation, Cardiac Rhythm Management, Fracture Healing and Others)” by Kalorama Information, there are few complications or side effects associated with the use of most external electrode neurostimulation units, such as TENS or EMS devices. The demand for more product sales will continue from patients who have found these modalities effective in reducing pain from arthritis and back pain or those with tight muscles. These products are also popular with patients because of their ease of operation and low costs.

Physicians rely on electromyography (EMG) to study patients with muscle weakness. EMG helps to distinguish between muscle conditions in which the problem begins in the muscle and muscle weakness due to nerve disorders. The two types of EMG are intramuscular EMG and surface EMG. Intramuscular EMG involves inserting a needle electrode through the skin into the muscle. Surface EMG involves placing the electrodes on the skin above the muscle. The method evaluates evoked responses to external stimuli.
Neurologists use electroencephalography (EEG) to characterize the actions of the brain. Electrodes are placed at several points on the scalp to detect and record patterns of electrical activity and check for abnormalities in the brain. The electrodes are connected to a recording device. EEG can diagnose the presence and type of seizure disorders and evaluate head injuries, tumors, and degenerative diseases.
