Description:

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) with sEMG (surface electromyography) is a fantastic modality of therapy to keep sharp in your tool box, but what if that tool has gone dull? How do you keep that skill sharpened without feeling inadequate in a patient’s home? Allow this functional, hands-on guided practice opportunity to be your sharpening stone! In this course, you will be guided through the Guardian Way’s Aspire device to re-familiarize yourself with the programs, placements, and the surface EMG component, which will enable your treatment to be game-changing for your patients! Join us for a refreshing of your skill set and place the bar for excellent therapy even higher!

Objectives:

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  1. List the programs of the NMES device for optional use during the treatment modality and the patients/diagnoses most appropriate for each.
  2. Demonstrate normative values of muscular output and readings with the use of sEMG and identify abnormal values.
  3. Demonstrate the placements available for usage during the modality of NMES.
  4. Formulate at least 3 functional and specific goals to utilize on a patient’s plan of care in conjunction with the use of NMES as a modality.
