The main theme of diploma paper is electrical stimulation in sport. On the start, there are shortly described definitions, main use of electrical stimulation as a tool and something about history of using it, methodology, chronic and acute effect of NMES (neuromuscular electrical stimulation) and NMES as a regeneration tool. In the end, there are also described effects of using NMES.
The main goal of diploma paper was to research effects of NMES, mechanisms, its use as a training tool in sport, acute and chronic use, regeneration after sport activity and rehabilitation after sport injury.
Descriptive methods were used in order to make diploma paper,it is a monology. Its references had been found in both, foreign and Slovenian sources.
It was found out that NMES has important part in both, clinical and sport use. It is effective in case of muscle atrophy, muscle injury, as a regeneration tool or as a part of training methods.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION
In fact, NMES as its core itself is not as effective the way like when it is used as a part of the voluntary contractions. In the future, there must be a lot of researches done in this way in order to make NMES more widely used.
