New Flexible Electronics Research Shows Promise for Spinal Therapies

New Flexible Electronics Research Shows Promise for Spinal Therapies

Patients recovering from spinal cord injuries or who have mobility disorders related to spinal nerve compression are frequently treated by the conditioning of the Hoffmann's reflex via non-surgical electrostimulation therapy. To track the progress of the treatment, electromyography is used to record the amplitude of the patient's muscle twitch response.
