14:00~15:00 OG Giken Co., Ltd.

IVES PLUS has 6 modes.
From these modes, I would demonstrate the application of power assist mode electrical stimulation. This mode is believed to ameliorate the upper limb paralysis in stroke patients. The way it works is that the device senses the weak electromyogram signal from the paralyzed muscle and electrically stimulates the muscle proportionally.
In this workshop, I will explain the way the IVES PLUS should be used in the power assist mode and the way the device must be used for different patients of different levels of motor function paralysis.

St. Marianna University School of Medicine Hospital introduces know-how for muscular assessment implemented by them.

14:30~15:30 ITO Co., Ltd.

“Introduction to Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation therapy for motor dysfunction after stroke.”

In this workshop, basic theory of Neuromuscular electrical stimulation(NMES) for motor dysfunction in stroke patients will be explained and demonstrated.
NMES can be applied to a hemiplegic upper limb as a supplementary method in combination with regular occupational therapy programs in order to recover motor function or prevent disuse muscle atrophy. Videos on how to combine regular occupational therapy with NMES will also be introduced. Contraindications and cautions for NMES will also be explained with basic principles on how to set parameters for a safe and effective use of NMES. We look forward to seeing you at our workshop.
