Neuromuscular diseases of the gut alter the normal motility patterns. Although surgical intervention remains the standard treatment, preservation of the sphincter attached to the rest of the gut is challenging. The present study aimed to evaluate a bioengineered gut-sphincter complex following its subcutaneous implantation for 4 weeks in rats. Engineered innervated human smooth muscle sheets and innervated human sphincters with a predefined alignment were placed around tubular scaffolds to create a gut-sphincter complex...

INTRODUCTION: Transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) can generate muscle contractions for rehabilitation and exercise. However, NMES-evoked contractions are limited by fatigue when they are delivered "conventionally" (CONV) using a single active electrode. Researchers developed "sequential" (SEQ) stimulation, involving rotation of pulses between multiple "aggregated" (AGGR-SEQ) or "distributed" (DISTR-SEQ) active electrodes, to reduce fatigue (torque-decline) by reducing motor unit discharge rates...

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) are commonly prescribed rehabilitative therapies. Closed-loop NMES holds the promise to yield more accurate limb control, which could enable new rehabilitative procedures. However, NMES/FES can rapidly fatigue muscle, which limits potential treatments and presents several control challenges. Specifically, the stimulation intensity-force relation changes as the muscle fatigues. Additionally, the delayed response between the application of stimulation and muscle force production, termed electromechanical delay (EMD), may increase with fatigue...

Existing implantable stimulators use powering approaches that result in stiff and bulky systems or result in systems incapable of producing the current magnitudes required for neuromuscular stimulation. This hampers their use in neuroprostheses for paralysis. We previously demonstrated an electrical stimulation method based on electronic rectification of high frequency (HF) current bursts. The implants act as rectifiers of HF current that flows through the tissues by galvanic coupling, transforming this current into low frequency current capable of performing neuromuscular stimulation...

: Clinical Scenario: Orthopedic knee conditions are regularly treated in sports medicine clinics. Rehabilitation protocols for these conditions are often designed to address the associated quadriceps strength deficits. Despite these efforts, patients with orthopedic knee conditions often fail to completely regain their quadriceps strength. Disinhibitory modalities have recently been suggested as a clinical tool that can be used to counteract the negative effects of arthrogenic muscle inhibition (AMI), which is believed to limit the effectiveness of therapeutic exercise...

High frequency neuromuscular electrical stimulation (HF NMES) induces muscular contractions through neural mechanisms that partially match physiological motor control. Indeed, a portion of the contraction arises from central mechanisms, whereby spinal motoneurons are recruited through the evoked sensory volley. However, the involvement of supraspinal centers of motor control during such a stimulation remained poorly understood. Therefore, we tested whether a single HF NMES session applied to the upper limb influences interhemispheric inhibition (IHI) from left to right motor cortex (M1)...

Anatomical basis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the collapse of the pharynx during sleep. It is considered as a result of complex interactions of structural and neuromuscular factors. Depth of sleep and body position have modulating effects. Although different areas of obstruction were identified, studies show that the sleep-mediated obstruction frequently occurs in the base of tongue area.Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) since more than 30 years...

Equivocal evidence indicates that high-intensity muscle contractions can affect the corticospinal responses in muscles not directly involved in the task. In the present study, the responsiveness of corticomotor pathway innervating non-dominant biceps brachii was measured in eleven healthy participants before and after: (i) two 100-s isometric unilateral knee extension maximal voluntary contractions (MVCs) on dominant leg (FATIGUE) and (ii) rest (CONTROL). Transcranial magnetic stimulation, transmastoid electrical and brachial plexus electrical stimulation were used to evoke motor evoked potential (MEP), cervicomedullary motor evoked potential (CMEP) and compound muscle action potential (Mmax) in biceps brachii muscle...

BACKGROUND: Loss of neuromuscular control of the ankle joint is a common impairment in neurologic conditions, leading to abnormal gait and a greater risk of falling. Limited information, however, is available on the effectiveness of functional electrical stimulation (FES) on reducing falls, and no studies have investigated its usefulness in improving lower limbs kinematics related to foot clearance and energy recovery. SETTING: Clinical setting. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective longitudinal study...

OBJECTIVE: This study was conducted to explore the potential use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation as an adjunctive treatment for muscle tension dysphonia. METHODS: Voice data and ratings of fatigue and soreness were obtained for two experiments. Experiment one examined the vocal effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation applied to the neck for 15 minutes. Experiment two examined the recovery effect of laryngeal neuromuscular electrical stimulation following a vocal loading task among normophonic women...

This study aimed to investigate whether a single session of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) can enhance vascular endothelial function and peripheral blood circulation in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Thirty-four male patients with AMI were alternately assigned to 2 groups, and received NMES with muscle contraction (NMES group, n = 17) or without muscle contraction (control group, n = 17) after admission. NMES was performed for quadriceps and gastrocnemius muscles of both legs for 30 minutes...

Early physical activity has been proven to accelerate functional recovery after total hip replacement (THR). Weightbearing intolerance secondary to postoperative pain inhibits participation in physical therapy and limits the achievement of functional independence. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been shown to improve pain and accelerate recovery. This study focused on the effects of NMES on weightbearing pain. The primary objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of NMES versus placebo in the reduction of pain and the use of opiate medications in the treatment of patients during weightbearing exercises after THR...

We investigated the effects of cyclic muscle twitch contraction caused by neuromuscular electrical stimulation on immobilization-induced muscle contracture and fibrosis in rats. Twenty-nine rats were divided into control, immobilization (IM), and immobilization with muscle contraction (MC) groups. The ankle joints of the IM and MC rats were fixed in full plantar flexion with a plaster cast for 4 weeks. In the MC group, cyclic muscle twitch contraction of the soleus muscle was induced using a commercial device (1 Hz, 4±2 mA, 60 min/day, 5 times/week) with the ankle joint immobilized...
