Smart control for functional electrical stimulation with optimal pulse intensity

Aljoscha Reinert, Jan C. Loitz, Fanny Quandt, Dietmar Schröder & Wolfgang H. Krautschneider
Transcutaneous electrical stimulation is a common treatment option for patients suffering from spinal cord injury or stroke. Two major difficulties arise when employing electrical stimulation in patients: Accurate stimulation electrode placement and configuration of optimal stimulation parameters. Optimizing the stimulation parameters has the advantage to reduce muscle fatigue after repetitive stimulation. Here we present a newly developed system which is able to automatically find the optimal individual stimulation intensity by varying the pulse length. The...
