    Stim unit i use, NEROMUSCULAR E-stim, pictures included

    Hello everyone, I know alot of you have asked me what type of e-stim unit i use and I really didn't have an answer, so i finally found out. Its a Neruomusclar Eletrical stimulation unit by EMPI. I'm not sure if Empi has pictures of it on their site. When i checked, it looks like they ony had a TENS unit picture. But here is the picture of mine:

    How do you know where to place the pads to stimulate particular muscle groups? I have an E-stim unit, and would like to use it to build the muscles over my winged shoulder blades, but I don't know where to have the pads placed.

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

    Alan, somtimes its just trial and error, I found out from my rehab PT, but this was for lower muscle groups in the legs, i'm not sure about upper. You have to be careful on places without alot of fat, it may hurt/burn. Is there someone that can place them on ur sholderblades for u and test? usually getting 2 big long stim pads like the kind i have posted in my other posts will do fine. Just don't overlap them and put them about 3 to 4 inches apart and you'll get a nice contraction. goodluck!

    In us dollars it would probably be little over 1000,- and I guess this bad boy won't be running on batteries The input is 220V and output is up to 80V, 4 channels, 40-280Hz. I tell you how it runs after I've given it a try.

    What was the output on yours again?

    Is there a difference between an E-Stim unit and a TENS unit? If so, what is the difference? I have considered looking into purchasing a TENS unit to see if I can get my biceps functional.

    Yes don't use a TENS unit, it won't give you enough contraction to do anything, TENS unit are mainly for pain. NOt for muscle building. And i think you ment the different between a TENS unit and a NEROMUSCULAR unit.

    Technical Specification
    Output:Two independent output terminal. Wave Form: bi-phasic square waves with zero net direct current (DC) components. Amplitude:0-80mA each channel, adjustable (500 ohm load) Pulse Width:50 to 260 microseconds, adjustable Frequency:2 to 150 Hz, adjustable Charge per Pulse:80mA x 250 microseconds (500 ohm test load) Maximum Voltage:0 to 80 volts. Maximum Charge:20 micro coulombs per pulse maximum, positive pulse and negative pulse separate.


    My voltage is the same output voltage as urs son, looks like my little unit packs a big punch! Mine only has 2 channels though so u can stim more body parts at a time then i can.
