MR-safe multisegmental vibration device for cortical mapping of paraspinal afferent input
The objective of this study was to develop an MR-safe stimulation device (pneumatic vibration device, pneuVID) that can apply vibrotactile stimulation to different thoracolumbar segments and to characterize stimulation parameters such as the amplitude and its stability for two relevant frequencies (20Hz/80Hz). This is the first apparatus specifically designed for paraspinal tissue vibration on different segmental levels in an MR environment.
