Stimulators, Electrical, Behavioral Therapy
Definition : Electrical stimulators designed to apply harmless but unpleasant electrical impulses to a patient (e.g., in the arm or leg) to modify undesirable behavior (e.g., self-injury). Most of these stimulators are used for aversion therapy sessions conducted by a therapist in clinical programs and/or at home. Some behavioral therapy stimulators also include an annoying sound stimulus for sound or sound/electric aversion conditioning. These stimulators are used in the treatment of obsessive/compulsive behavior and drug abuse.
