Electrical activation of the paralyzed neuromuscular system (functional electrical stimulation-FES) provides a means for restoration of control of the paralyzed extremities. My research involves the development of neuroprostheses that use FES to restore hand/arm control to individuals of cervical level spinal cord injury (quadriplegia). Research activities focus on:
- FES systems for control of the extremity including acquisition of myoelectric control information, activation and coordination of multiple muscles to produce synthesized movement, and sensory feedback.
- Implantable FES systems including sensors, telemetry, stimulators and electrodes.
- Evaluation of neuroprostheses supplying upper extremity function in human subjects.
