Penetration force and drag force of 3 market leading monopolar EMG needles
50% less peak force during insertion
Ambu's monopolar needle requires about half the peak force during penetration. Ambu's needle has a back bevel cut design making it sharper. Previous studies have shown that patients prefer sharper needles.1
50% less drag force after insertion
The Ambu Monopolar Needle exposes patients to half the drag force of the market leading needle. Drag - or friction force - is extremely significant in EMG studies when the needle will be re-positioned and potentially used in multiple locations.
