What is an EMG test?

EMG (Electromyography) is a technique for measuring signals produced by skeletal muscles and nerves. EMG signals arise when a muscle takes action. These electrical muscle signals can be measured in a so-called EMG test, often by means of sticky electrodes on the skin or an electrode-needle. These electrodes are connected to an EMG machine through …

What is a Tens Unit?

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) units are electrical stimulators. The stimulation is applied to the skin by means of sticky electrodes. Hence the name transcutaneous, meaning ‘existing, applied, or measured across the depth of the skin’. TENS stimulators are used for applying electrical signals through the skin to the underlying nerves. Depending on the intensity …

About & Contact

As research to electrical stimulation (ES) proceeds, more and more possibilities are found for improving the rehabilitation process of many diseases. However, treatment with ES is far from being used to its full extent. This website will try to offer a clear overview of the possibilities and limitations of ES, based on scientific research.


This website will also try to make the connection between patients, therapists and scientific evidence related to electrical stimulation. This initiative has started in August 2018 out of the very strong belief that ES can offer much more to much more people. This belief derived from completing the study Human Movement Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam together with clinical ES experience.
