If you're a dedicated researcher studying the field of Kinesiology or are a primary care provider that needs to accurately diagnose your patient with neuromuscular conditions, it's important to use the right equipment that can provide advanced information on the body's muscular system.
One of the best pieces of equipment you can use in your hospital, clinic, or research facility is an EMG machine that can help diagnose your patients and provide valuable information on muscular activity. At MedScan® Diagnostic Systems, Inc. in Westlake, Ohio, we pride ourselves on offering many types of new and refurbished equipment to make it affordable for you and your practice. Whether it's a new or used c-arm, refurbished EMG machine, or other equipment, our products can help you improve the quality of life of your patients.
What Is an EMG Machine Used For?
Muscles don't simply contract and relax on their own. All muscle activities start with information relayed by the nervous system and electrical signals that tell the muscles to do activities. An EMG machine is designed to measure this activity through electrodes, acupuncture-sized needles, and an oscilloscope that provides information on muscular electrical activity in real-time.
Using an EMG machine in your practice can help you diagnose your patients with neuromuscular conditions such as:
- Cervical spondylosis
- Carpal tunnel
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Lambert-Eaton syndrome
- Muscular dystrophy
- Myasthenia gravis
If you're a researcher looking to study the activity of the muscles, you can buy a used or new EMG machine to help further your studies and obtain accurate data on muscle activity.
Cost-Benefit of an EMG Machine
The pros of using an EMG machine are fairly straightforward. You can get an accurate diagnosis that can help you determine the right treatment option for your patient.
The EMG test is minimally invasive and not too painful. Through electrodes placed directly on the surface of the skin and a tiny needle inserted into the muscle, you can get information without much preparation beforehand, unlike other tests such as MRIs.
EMG machines cost around $5,000 to $13,000 for newer models, but they can be purchased used to save you money. If you're a researcher, you can apply for grants that can help you purchase an EMG Machine.
