The CS4 and CS8 stimulators have been optimized for striated and smooth muscle stimulation and are ideal for producing controlled perivascular or tissue-embedded neurotransmitter release. The stimulators provide a variety of stimulation modes such as single pulse, continuous frequency and train pulse. The latter is particularly useful when performing fatigue studies in striated muscle and when evalua-ting vascular-neuromuscular function in smooth muscle.
The CS4 and CS8 stimulators are controlled by the MyoPULSE software. In MyoPULSE one can program simple voltage single pulses and very complicated voltage train stimulation protocols. All protocol parameters are easily entered and saved in MyoPULSE and can be applied to up to four or eight channels on the CS4 and CS8 stimulator, respectively. All protocols programmed in the MyoPULSE software can easily be accessed and retrieved. The CS4 and CS8 stimulators have built-in input and output trigger functions controlled by the MyoPULSE software. The input and output trigger ports are located on the back of the stimulators.
