Each sweep should cover the extreme left and extreme right of the field of vision at least 12 inches at the rate of two back and forth movements per second. The authors did not reveal significant differences in pre—post scores within interventions. More recently, during the s, virtual reality or computer simulated exposure has come to be utilized in lieu of in vivo exposure.
However, because this client was also receiving in vivo exposure during the sessions, the treatment method also involved systematic desensitization and the findings therefore tell us little or nothing about the effectiveness of EMDR per se.

Kleinknecht and Morgan reported on a case study of a man who had been shot and subsequently treated with EMDR.

The out-of-band emission from each transmitter is subject to several stages of attenuation before it reaches the receiver, including the bandpass filter following the amplifier; the combiner, if present; the transmit cable; the isolation between the transmit and receive antennas; the receive cable; and the receiver multicoupler, if present.
