Abstract:

Electrical stimulation can be used for many applications within the fields of sports, pain control and medicine. However, until now for transcutaneous (surface) electrical stimulation it is not completely clear and controversial in its details how the applied current propagates inside the body and when particular muscles or nerves are stimulated. Therefore we are developing finite element models (FEM) of the transcutaneous electrical stimulation to be able to simulate the transient evolution of the potential and the current density inside the human body. These models will help us to better understand the control of the muscle by electrical stimulation.
