    electric stimulator electrode placement help

    Does anyone know a website / youtube video that shows the best electrode placement for leg stimulation? I just got a used (and very cheap) NT2000 electric muscle stimulator that came with VCR tape (yeah, it's old but it works). I'm not using it for pain, simply to keep the muscles exercised. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have one, but haven't used it in years.
    Just do a google image search for anatomy of muscle groups. That should inform you about the size and location of whatever muscles you're trying to stimulate.
    Just remember - red leads towards your heart; black leads away.
