Can the EMS 7500 help with muscle re-education?

As an electrical muscle stimulator device, the EMS 7500 can isolate and stimulate injured muscles which have not yet healed enough for the patient to exert them on their own.  By contracting and distending the muscles, EMS allows the user to passively exercise the afflicted area, enhancing rehabilitation without risking further injury. Muscle re-education is often required after trauma or surgery, not only to allow movement again, but also to prevent loss of muscle mass and disuse atrophy. Some injuries warrant full immobilization as part of the healing process, which doesn’t necessarily preclude muscle re-education. For example, the electrodes included with the EMS 7500 may be placed underneath a cast, achieving both immobilization and stimulation at the same time.
EMS 7500 muscle re-education focuses on skeletal muscles, which are the ones that are connected to the bones by the tendons. Unlike cardiac and smooth muscles –which are involuntary striated muscle-, skeletal muscles can be moved at will. It is this circumstance that makes these muscles prone to injury, and that makes it both essential and possible to rehabilitate them through muscle re-education. The skeletal muscles are grouped in four different categories; parallel muscles, convergent muscles, pinnate muscles, and sphincter muscles.

The parallel muscles comprise the majority of skeletal muscles in the body, and their fascicles run parallel to the direction of the muscle. Examples include the triceps and biceps. The convergent muscles have fibers which originate from a common point but that also cover a broad surface, permitting a wide variety of movements, exemplified by the pectoralis muscles. The pennate muscles create a vast amount of tension because their fascicles form an oblique angle with their tendons. And the sphincter muscles are frequently located at the entrance and exit of outer and inner passage ways, where they contract to reduce the size of the opening. 
Electrical muscle stimulation is used to assess the force and contraction speed of skeletal muscles at different stimulation frequencies, related to fiber-type composition and mix as part of an individual muscle group. In lay terms, the EMS 7500 unit can be a great tool in the re-education of muscles that have suffered from musculoskeletal injuries. Needless to say, though, that this type of rehab therapy must only be pursued with the knowledge and guidance of a certified doctor and/or physical therapist, in order to guarantee the most optimal results.
