  1. Phases
    movement of current in one direction
  2. Interpulse Interval
    • Time btwn the pulse
    • Muscle needs to repolarize
  3. Amplitude
    • How high it is
    • Greater amplitude, higher the recruitment
  4. Rate Of Rise
    • most important characteristic in depolarizing nerve
    • Needs to go up quickly
  5. Phase charge
    the number of electrons in the phase
  6. Pulse charge
    • the number of electrons in the pulse
    • Sum of phase charges
  7. Pulsed Waveforms (Types of Pulses)
    • Monophasic
    • Biphasic
    • Symmetrical biphasic
  8. Monophasic Pulse
    movement of current in one direction
  9. Biphasic Pulse
    Movement of current in both directions
  10. Symmetrical Biphasic Pulse
    Movement of current in both direction is identical
  11. Asymmetrical Biphasic current
    Movement of current in each direction is different
  12. Asymmetrical Biphasic Balanced
    • the Phase charge (number of electrons in each phase) are equal
    • Not symmetrical but same amplitude
  13. Asymmetrical Biphasic Unbalanced
    the Phase charge (number of electrons in each phase) are unequal
  14. Polyphasic Pulse
    • Pulses with 3 or more phases
    • Polyphasic pulses can be balanced or unbalanced depending on the phase charges
    • Usually fast frequency sinusoidal waves. These pulses are also referred to as bursts.
