  • Functional Electrical Therapy of Upper Extremities

    This chapter describes functional electrical therapy (FET) systems that relate to the methods used in recovery of upper limb functioning in humans with a sensory¿¿-¿¿ motor lesion in the central nervous system (CNS) that impacts reaching and grasping. FET functionally assists the user while the sensory feedback associated with the performance of the activities contributes to the relearning process of the brain. This functional sensory feedback should be maximized both in intensity and duration and should not be limited to short clinical training sessions. During the therapy period, a FET system can be provided to each stroke patient for use during his or her daily activities, thus resulting in intensive training. FET allows patients to train performing functional movements and learn new strategies of optimal use of preserved sensory¿¿-¿¿motor mechanism. This training could be understood as the process of recalibration of the natural control system.

  • Adaptive leg placement strategies in the fruit fly set an example for six-legged walking systems

    Poster. Leg placement of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster was studied under various visual conditions while walking on a square-wave like linear array of narrow "stepping stones". Three-dimensional high speed video analysis revealed elaborate and error tolerant trajectories of the different legs which depend only to a minor extent on visual influences. Flies do not endeavor to place their legs always on the top surfaces of the treads but equally often cling to the edges or to the side surfaces of the stepping stones. A successful fly-like walking robot would rely on visual influences only for far-field orientation but would exploit a rich mechanosensation at its lower extremities and the ability to attach its legs to various surfaces. Technical solutions for these requirements are currently investigated using a single-leg test stand and a six-legged robot
