The OML probe is a useful clinical tool for locating the motor points and nerves of paralysed muscles. Used with the Microstim 2v2, motor points and nerves can be quickly located by observing the effect on the muscles. It is particularly useful when learning or revising your knowledge of anatomy.Read More +
Step 1. Put the Microstim 2v2 into mode 2 (20Hz continuous) or mode 5 (40Hz continuous) and plug the probe into one of the electrode lead sockets.
Step 2. Place a self-adhesive electrode in a neutral position, for example, over the back of the elbow or wrist when using on the arm or over the patella when using in the leg. Connect the electrode to the red pin attached to the probe lead.
Step 3. Place some ultrasound gel on the skin in the area you wish to test. Place the probe on the skin, making sure there is plenty of gel to make a good electrical connection. Turn up the stimulation intensity until a movement is produced. Gently move the probe across the area to find the muscle motor points or nerves you are looking for.
