Table 2 Kinesiographic values in the MT TENS, ST TENS and control group

From: Comparison between sensory and motor transcutaneous electrical nervous stimulation on electromyographic and kinesiographic activity of patients with temporomandibular disorder: a controlled clinical trial

  MTS TENS STS TENS CONTROL
Baseline After TENS Baseline After TENS Baseline After TENS
Verticality 1.23 (0.72) 3.03 (1.17)a,b 1.25 (0.74) 2.94 (1.14) a,b 1.25 (0.79) 1.27 (1.09)
Anterior-posteriority 0.61 (0.36) 0.78 (0.51) 0.58 (0.47) 0.70 (0.38) 0.59(0.44) 0.64 (0.39)
V/AP Ratio 2.36 (1.18) 4.42 (3.06) a,b 2.15 (1.23) 4.20 (2.97) a,b 2.24 (1.18) 2.09 (1.46)
  1. Legend: MTS, motor threshold of stimulation; STS, sensorial threshold of stimulation; V/AP, verticality - anterior-posteriority ratio.
  2. Letters refer to significant change pre-post treatment (a) or between test (MST or SST) and control group (b).
