  • Background and Aims: Laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) and venous occlusion plethysmography are techniques frequently used in TENS studies to measure blood flow changes in skin and volume changes in a limb segment, respectively. However, the effect of TENS on blood flow locally in human muscle has not previously been investigated. The primary aim of the present study was to investigate effects of TENS on blood flow in the trapezius muscle by using a new application of photoplethysmography (PPG), i… CONTINUE READING
