Electrostimulation is stimulation using electricity.
F wave is the second of two voltage changes observed after electrical stimulation is applied to the skin surface above the distal region of a nerve. F waves are often used to measure nerve conduction velocity, and are particularly useful for evaluating conduction problems in the proximal region of nerves (i.e., portions of nerves near the spinal cord).
People with chronic tetraplegia, due to high-cervical spinal cord injury, can regain limbmovements through coordinated electrical stimulation of peripheral muscles and nerves, known as functional electrical stimulation (FES).
It can be used in the context of:
Cranial electrotherapy stimulation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation
