Toshiaki Suzuki, DMSc, is a physical therapist and presently a professor at the Graduate School of Kansai University of Health Sciences, Osaka, Japan. As an instructor at the Department of Physical Therapy, College of Medical Technology, Kyoto University (1987–1994), he learned electromyography methods from Tetsuji Fujiwara, MD, and Jun Kimura, MD, professors emeriti (Kyoto University). He has extensively studied electromyography’s use in physical therapy. His interests include fundamental research on the effects of neurological physical therapy using electromyography, especially spinal neural function using evoked F-wave electromyography and the development of Acupoint Stimulation Physical Therapy (ASPT), which combines physical therapy and acupuncture. The effect of ASPT is being investigated using electromyography and is expected to develop into a new physical therapy method. He has many original publications and books on these subjects.
