A New Generation of Electrical Stimulation
We offer a diverse array of materials specifically designed for crafting electrodes, catering to an extensive range of applications such as medical devices, physical therapy equipment, athletic performance enhancement, and neurological research. Our electrodes boast exceptional flexibility, compliance, conformity, and stretchability, rendering them as highly effective alternatives to conventional rigid electrodes.
Through collaborative partnerships, we engage closely with clients and various functional printers, tailoring electrode solutions to meet the unique demands of diverse applications. ACI provides top-of-the-line materials capable of accommodating a variety of electrode designs for e-stimulation. In contrast to traditional electrodes manufactured on inflexible substrates or utilizing cumbersome connections, our electrodes are produced via a printing process on a TPU system that can be easily integrated into any garment, ensuring a pliable, elastic, and skin-compatible composition.
Electrical stimulation or e-stimulation/e-stim are designed to deliver targeted electrical stimulation with unparalleled accuracy, enhancing therapeutic outcomes and user experiences. They are popular in physical therapy to help with muscle and nerve recovery as well as pain management. There are four main types of e-stimulation:
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
- Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
- Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)
- Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
Our conductive materials can be used to power e-stim electrodes across various applications including:
- Sports & Fitness—muscle recovery, physical therapy
- Medical—physical therapy, pain management
