Needle electrode consists of thin wire through which electrical current is passed when attached to a power source that generates heat or destroys diseased tissues or seal blood vessels. Needle electrode is placed into the muscle to evaluate individual motor units, neurography and electrophysiological investigation under the skin. In electromyography the type of needle electrode to be used is selected, and preferred to use one type consistently to become well acquainted with its characteristics.
Increasing incidences of neurology, is a key factor driving growth of the global needle electrode market
