Positioning of Electrodes
The positioning of electrodes is the most important factor to ensure a comfortable and efficient stimulation session. Especially for programs inducing muscular contractions; resistance, strength, explosive strength, hypertrophy, rehabilitation. Programs inducing muscular twitches; recovery, warm-up and muscular pain management programs, do not require the location of the motor point.
It is therefore essential to devote special care to this aspect.
Correct Placement of Electrodes
The correct placement of electrodes, and the use of significant energy intensity, allow for greater recruitment of muscle fibres. The higher the intensity level reached, the greater the recruitment of your muscle fibres. Therefore the more muscle fibres working, the greater number of muscle fibres that strengthen.
What is a Motor Point
The motor point is where the motor nerve enters the muscle, an extremely localised area where the nerve is most sensitive to stimulation. Most motor points are well known but the exact location varies in different individuals.
