Electrical dosimetry issues are discussed in relation to electrical stun devices (ESDs). A measure of effectiveness is based on a 'threshold factor,' F(T), calculated with a myelinated nerve model that simulates stimulation of a reference-case neuron (20 microm diameter, 1 cm distant). Several ESDs were measured in the laboratory using resistive loads of(More)
Attention is drawn to recent paper by Rogers et al. (Aug., 2004) in which ultra-wideband pulses are applied to an isolated muscle as part of deriving a strength-duration curve for threshold stimulation. The paper extends the strength-duration threshold curve for unipolar pulses down to a pulse duration of about 1 ns, on the order of 1000 times shorter than(More)
