cognitive stimulation in the nursing interventions classification, a nursing intervention defined as promotion of awareness and comprehension of surroundings by utilization of planned stimuli.
cutaneous stimulation in the nursing interventions classification, a nursing intervention defined as stimulation of the skin and underlying tissues for the purpose of decreasing undesirable signs and symptoms such as pain, muscle spasm, or inflammation.
deep brain stimulation (DBS) patient-controlled, continuous, high-frequency electrical stimulation of a specific area of the brain by means of an implanted electrode, which is controlled by a battery implanted just below the clavicle. The electrical signals block those signals from the brain causing tremors and some other related problems such as occur in Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia.
stimulation/nurturance in the omaha system, activities that promote healthy physical and emotional development.
transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (transcutaneous neural stimulation) see transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.

The WTM 3300 redefines the urban backhaul market because it is purpose-built for deployment in newly "densified" city environments where traditional microwave and typical 70-80GHz radios cannot be installed due to large, highly visible parabolic antennas.
Essentially, one Simulsat does the work of 35 steerable parabolic antennas and only requires the space of one and a half antennas.
Essentially, one Simulsat C/Ku does the work of 35 steerable parabolic antennas and only requires the space of one and a half antennas.
ATCi handled all aspects of the project, from the reception integration to final installation, providing two Simulsat C/Ku Multibeam antennas, Parabolic Antennas, Matrix Switches, as well as cabling from LNBs to IRD in order to complete the super headend.
Successive generational leaps took place in 1990 with the construction of a very large telescope in Cerro Paranal, with Gemini Sur, with the Magellan project and, more recently, with the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) that by 2010 will install 64 parabolic antennas in the Llano of Chajnantor.
Prior to installing Simulsat C/Ku, CNBC used several steerable parabolic antennas to meet their multiple satellite reception requirements.
