The author offers a new needle electrode of telescopic construction for Electromiography, new methods for evaluation of Motor Unit territory and neuromuscular system function. The new electrode significantly reduces painfulness and traumaticity of tests, new parameters enable to identify(evaluate) the density of Motor Units and crossing of Motor Units territories. A significant reduction of painfulness and traumaticity of the examination will promote wide use of needle Electromiography possibly in pediatric patients as well. New methods and parameters enable better evaluation of functional state of Motor Unit and neuromuscular system.


Steps to reproduce

The aim of this research is achieved by introducing changes in the construction of electromyography electrode and EMG examination methods.
