ELECTROSTIMULATION OF THE UPPER LIMB: PROGRAMMED HAND FUNCTION.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Neuroelectrical stimulation of nine individual muscles of the forearm and hand by surface electrodes has generated three modes of gripping in quadriplegic patients, plus active physiotherapy regimes. A microcomputer interfaced with a multichannel stimulator generates the programmed modes in open and closed loop.
