E-Stim, NMES, ESP, oh my! Rick McAdoo of Ampcare guides us out of the electric alphabet soup, and towards clarity for this complex modality. Through trial, error, experimentation on Rick, and tons of research, Ampcare developed their ESP.
Wondering if you have to crank up the electricity if you hope to make any change to your patient’s swallow? Rick explains how parameters are the most important thing about your NMES program. Targeting muscles in a sensitive part of the body buried layers under the skin is no smooth sailing, but Rick is here to guide us through the muddy waters of NMES, and to prove that pain isn’t the best thing for your patient, but movement is.
