STIM WAVEFORM DESCRIPTIONS
- Interferential Current:
The Interferential waveform consists of two channels, each with a sinusoidal waveform; one of fixed frequency and one of variable frequency.When the four electrodes are positioned so that the two channels cross each other, the waveforms mix within the tissue to produce a train of pulses whose frequencies and amplitude are dependent on the sweep mode, beat frequency and amplitude settings, respectively.
The Premodulated waveform is an amplitude modulated sine.
wave. This waveform is similar to the beat frequency, or pattern
created by Interferential current. In some cases, Premodulated
therapy provides a good alternative for Interferential
treatment, especially when treating areas of the
body where four electrodes can not be utilized.
- Russian Current:
Medium Frequency Bursted Sine Wave
The Russian current is a 2,500 Hz sinusoidal
carrier wave, interrupted to create a burst of
pulses. The burst frequency sets the number
of bursts per second, whereas the duty cycle
sets the duration of the burst. Russian current
produces strong comfortable muscle contractions
having the flexibility for use with large and small
- Twin-Peak High Volt Pulsed Current:
The pulse parameters
of the Twin-Peak High
Volt current are the
factors that allow a great variety of
physiologic responses. The important benefit is versatility in clinical
Examples for clinical
use include: relaxation of muscle
spasms, prevention or retardation
of disuse atrophy, increasing
local blood circulation, muscle
re-education, and maintaining
or increasing range of motion.
Unlike currents with a very long
phase duration, the very short
pulse duration of the Twin-Peak
High Volt current creates comfortable stimulation. The very short
pulse duration followed by a very
long interpulse interval eliminates the
formation of any appreciable chemical
effects in the stimulated tissue
