Functional E-Stim Lab by Susan Hastings, PT, DPT, PCS
With the goal of simplifying electrical stimulation as a treatment modality and helping participants to gain confidence in its use, participants will use the Empi Continuum unit (provided) in teams of two. They will learn to set the unit parameters at different therapeutic levels and apply stimulation to their partner. Each participant will see and feel the differences between different settings, and between letting the unit cycle on and off (NMES) and using a hand switch to augment functional movement (FES).
Registration is limited to 20 participants who have taken the Sparking Change pre-requisite course.
