Transcutaneous (surface) electrical stimulation (TES) is a widely used technique for producing artificial neural and motor activation in humans[1]. To obtain maximum functional benefit, it is necessary for patients to regularly use the TES systems both at home and in the clinic. However the reapplication of electrodes and connecting cables is time consuming and error prone. A new multi-layer textile technology was used to produce neuroprostheses which contain multiple integrated electrodes and embroidered wires. The multi-layer technology also enables development of water proof, insulated garment which can be worn for long periods.
