Visible to the public CPS Large: Cybernetic Interfaces for the Restoration of Human Movement through Functional Electrical Stimulation

Abstract:

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a promising technology for activating muscles in spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. The objective of our project has been to develop an intuitive user interface and control system for FES that allows high-level tetraplegic patients to regain the use of their own arm. This work has had two primary outcomes: contributions to the development of a technology that benefits those with high-level SCI, and the development of biologically-inspired design principles for cyber-physical systems.

Visible to the public Cybernetic Interfaces for the Restoration of Human Movement Through Functional Electrical Stimulation

The objective of this research is to develop an intuitive user interface for functional electrical stimulation (FES), which uses surgically-implanted electrodes to stimulate muscles in spinal cord-injured (SCI) patients. The challenge is to enable high-level tetraplegic patients to regain the use of their own arm.
