The EMS-1C and EMS-2C are effective, easy to use, electronic muscle / neuromuscular stimulators. The EMS-1C produces "Interrupted DC" (Galvanic) stimulation. The EMS-2C produces Interrupted DC and Pulsed (Faradic) stimulation. Both units allow easy one hand operation, including current adjustment, active probe positioning, and on-off control. These instruments are used in the evaluation and treatment of muscle dysfunction caused by peripheral and CNS disorders. They are most commonly used for preventing muscle atrophy, relaxing muscle spasms, and muscle re-education.
Because of the small size and light weight of these units, many physicians and therapists find them especially useful for bedside and in-home treatments. In addition, they often prescribe these instruments for their patients to administer some of their own therapy. This is due to the simplicity of the units and the inherent safety of battery powered devices (complete isolation from other equipment and the AC line voltage) and current-limiting circuitry. This permits an optimum amount of therapy, rather than that limited by the therapist's schedule and cost concerns.
Electronically, the circuit uses a simple but very effective current-sourced output, supplying the needed voltage to produce the set output current.
