Selection of muscle and nerve-cuff electrodes for neuroprostheses using customizable musculoskeletal model

Dimitra Blana, PhD, et al.

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems aim to return movement to people with neurological problems, such as spinal cord injury, by electrically stimulating paralyzed muscles. Which muscles to stimulate in order to restore the most function depends on the FES users– characteristics and needs and on hardware limitations, such as the number of electrodes available in the FES system. We successfully used a computer model that considers all these factors to identify the best set of muscles to stimulate without the need for human experimentation.
