Myoguide™ EMG/ESTIM BoNT Injection Guidance System Improves Needle Placement

There are many compelling reasons to use EMG guidance. The first is that EMG ensures that the needle is located in a muscle and in a muscle that is actively contracting in association with the disorder. Speelman and Brans showed that even the most experienced “blind” injectors were frequently inaccurate in identifying needle placement in…

Myoguide Power:  Alkaline Versus NiMH Rechargeable Batteries

. Even though the NiMH rechargeable batteries have a lower specified capacity (2300mAH) and lower voltage (1.2V) compared to a typical Duracell ProCell Alkaline AA battery (2850mAH, 1.5V), they tend to provide more capacity in a higher current draw situation. NiMH rechargeable batteries provide a steadier discharge than an alkaline battery.  i.e. Alkaline batteries have…
