Overview

This course will introduce you to the principles behind neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), evidence-based research concerning the purpose and use of NMES for neurological recovery, and reasons to treat the body using the SaeboStim One and SaeboStim Pro. This introductory CEU course is intended for medical professionals (e.g. OT/OTA, PT/PTA, Physicians, Orthotists) directly related to the rehabilitation of a patient or client. To participate in this CEU and receive credit, the participant must be a licensed, treating clinician. Completion of this course will reward the participant with 0.75 NBCOT PDUs (0.075 AOTA CEUs), following completion of the presentation and a ≥80% score on the quiz. You will have 90 days to complete this course. This course will provide evidence-based research on positive effects of NMES training, when to use NMES, and types of NMES application. It will also talk about the features and benefits of treating shoulder subluxation and other body parts using the SaeboStim One, and features, benefits, and reasons to use NMES, SES, and TENS with the SaeboStim Pro, and why to use these devices in the clinic or home for rehabilitation.
