Abstract

Functional electrical stimulation is a considerably new technology for stroke rehabilitation therapy of paralyzed limbs by actively stimulating the muscular nerve endings using controlled electrical impulses to produce meaning movements. This project involves development of a software system for complex control of the stimulation system. It is integrated with the feedback from motion sensors to produce an automated system for exercising movements in the paralyzed upper arm.
