Project description

Purchase of a new EMG machine in replacement of our present alsmost 20-years-old machine. With this machine, all electrodiagnostic techniques currently used in our research department can be done (electromyography, motor and sensory nerve conduction studies, F-waves, magnetic motor evoked potentials, decrement, deafness testing). It can be used in 5 ongoing and in future PhD theses.
