Abstract:

LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE:MORE WIDELY APPLY THE ADVANTAGES OF TRANSCUTANEOUS NEUROSTIMULATION TO CRANIOMANDIBULAR PAIN THERAPY. PROJECT AIMS:EXPLORE FEASIBILITY OF TECHNOLOGICALLY SIMPLIFYING CIRCUITRY OF OUR PRESENT NEUROSTIMULATOR FOR SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS. HEALTH RELATEDNESS: CRANIOMANDIBULAR NEUROSTIMULATION IS NOT ONLY ESSENTIAL FOR HEAD AND NECK PAIN, BUT ALSO TO ACHIEVE A RELAXED NEUROMUSCULAR METHODOLOGY: 1. IDENTIFY STATE-OF-THE-ART COMPONENTS, IMPROVE CIRCUIT DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUE. 2. DESIGN LIGHT EMITTER DIODES (LED) TO INDICATE FAULTY ELECTRODE OR CABLE CONNECTIONS. 3. PREJELLED DISPOSABLE ELECTRODES USING NEW ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE PLASTICS, SHAPED SO AUXILIARIES CAN MORE 4. EXPLORE VARIOUS PULSE-WIDTHS AND REST INTERVALS BETWEEN 5. MONITOR PHYSIOLOGIC RESPONSE TO REDESIGNED UNIT WITH QUANTITATIVE MEASUREMENT: MULTICHANNEL ELECTRO-MYOGRAPH DATA; ELECTRONICALLY DERIVED MEASUREMENT OF CHANGES IN SKELETAL RELATION OF MANDIBLE TO SKULL AS MUSCLES RELAX; COMPARE OBJECTIVE DATA WITH SUBJECTIVE PAIN-REDUCTION EVALUATION BY PATIENT. THE ABOVE RESULTING DESIGN WILL BE APPLIED TO THE PRODUCTION OF A PRESCRIPTION NEUROSTIMULATOR WHICH IS SMALLER, MORE USER-FRIENDLY, AND LESS EXPENSIVE. THIS UNIT CAN BE PRESCRIBED FOR PURCHASE OR RENTAL FOR HOME USE FOR EXTENDED TREATMENT AND RELIEF OF PAIN OF FACIAL NEURALGIAS.
