Abstract:

A functional electrical stimulation system with surface electrodes and four stimulation channels was developed. The proposed system was used to design two neural prostheses for spinal cord injured subjects and stroke subjects. One prosthesis was used to restore a grasping function in high lesioned tetraplegic subjects. The other prosthesis was used to eliminate the 'drop foot' problem in incomplete spinal cord injured subjects and stroke subjects. The preliminary results obtained with these two neural prostheses indicate that they can significantly improve the quality of life of spinal cord injured subjects, and that the subjects with such prostheses are more independent in daily living activities.
