Development of network-based multichannel neuromuscular electrical stimulation system for stroke rehabilitation

Hongen Qu, MS, et al.

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is a promising assistive technology for rehabilitation that may benefit a large population of patients poststroke, including Veterans. Here, we have designed and tested a prototype of a multimuscle NMES system as an emerging therapy for people with paretic stroke. Results showed that synergistic stimulation of multiple muscles in people with stroke improved performance of multijoint movements with more natural velocity profiles at the elbow and shoulder and reduced acromion excursion due to compensatory trunk rotation. The network-based NMES system may provide an innovative solution that allows more physiological activation of multiple muscles in multijoint task training.
