  • Fasciated nerve-muscle explants for in vitro comparison of magnetic and electrical neuromuscular stimulation

    Neuromuscular stimulation has become a central technique for research and clinical efforts in rehabilitation, but available devices still do not show the needed performance in strength and selectivity for this approach. However, the knowledge about the exact intramuscular structure formed by the axons, muscle fibers with their different metabolism types and properties as well as the motoric endplates in between is still too rough for purely theoretical optimization. In this text, we present an experimental setup for parametrized studies of the spatial and temporal degrees of freedom (DOF) in electrical as well as magnetic stimulation. For clarification of the physiologic background, nerve-muscle explants are dissected and kept on life support in a nutrient system with glucose and oxygen supply. The setup provides two-channel EMG signals and a dynamic force signal. The design was adapted to meet the conditions for physical compatibility with magnetic stimulation and allows coil position sweeps with four (three translational and one rotational) DOF. The setup provides access to essential boundary conditions and means to simulate lesions as well as the influence of drugs. Besides with the presented setup, comparisons and even combined application of magnetic and electrical stimulation become possible on the level of the neuromuscular system. Finally, this approach shall help to improve rehabilitation by peripheral stimulation after nerve lesions. The focus of this text lies on the setup and the nutrition which will entail particular studies in the sequel.

  • A Novel FES Strategy for Poststroke Rehabilitation Based on the Natural Organization of Neuromuscular Control

    The past decades have witnessed remarkable progress in neural technologies such as functional electrical stimulation (FES) and their applications in neurorehabilitation and neuromodulation. These advances are powered by new neuroscientific understandings of the organization and compositionality of neuromuscular control illuminating how muscle groups may be activated together as discrete units known as muscle synergies. These parallel developments have promoted novel approaches to clinical rehabilitation for neurological disorders that are insurmountable to current treatments. One such breakthrough is the evolution of FES as a therapeutic tool in poststroke rehabilitation with an interventional strategy particularly inspired by the concept that muscles in humans may be purposefully coordinated through neuromotor modules represented as muscle synergies. This paper will review recent advances in multichannel FES technology, its potential applications in poststroke rehabilitation, new findings that support the neurological basis of the muscle synergies for generating natural motor tasks, and the application of the muscle-synergy concept in poststroke assessment and rehabilitation of motor impairment. Finally, we will recommend future directions of development in relation to assistive FES and synergy-driven adaptive training for poststroke rehabilitation.

  • Techniques for Information Extraction from the Surface EMG Signalhigh-Density Surface EMG

    This chapter deals with the information that can be extracted from images obtained when electrode grids are applied to the skin above muscles with different architectures. The interpretation of these images, and therefore the information obtainable, depends on the muscle architecture and fiber arrangement. The action potentials propagating along muscle fibers generate electric fields in the surrounding conductive medium. The chapter deals with the surface EMG instantaneous images, with the feature images, and with the spatiotemporal images. It provides examples on the information that may be obtained from high-density surface EMG (HD-EMGs) detected from muscles with pinnate architecture. Two main fields of research application of HDsEMG may be identified such as surface EMG imaging and surface EMG decomposition. From the clinical point of view, the expected developments concern more extensive applications in biofeedback and monitoring of the neuromuscular system for prevention purposes and automatic detection of the innervation zone.

  • Toward an upper limb motor neuroprosthesis for neurorehabilitation

    Recently, it has been a big progress in motor learning, neuroplasticity, and functional recovery after the occurrence of brain lesion. Relevant results in neuroscience have stimulated research in neurorehabilitation. Repetitive motor activity in a real-world environment with a cognitive effort has been identified in several studies as favorable for motor recovery in stroke patients. A well known technique is Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation, which can be applied in a variety of ways to the affected upper extremity following stroke. Taking into account the below ideas, this project aims at developing a Functional Electrical Stimulation based motor neuroprosthesis, for neurorehabilitation.

  • Estimation and localization of multiple dipole sources for noninvasive mapping of muscle activity

    In this paper, we develop a method for estimating and localizing multiple current-dipole sources within a finite-element arm model from surface EMG measurements. This extends previous work (Jesinger and Stonick, 1994 and LoPresti et al., 1995) in which we developed a realistic finite-element arm model from magnetic resonance images and then solved the single source localization problem via exhaustive search. Exhaustive search, however, is unacceptable for the multi-source localization problem due to the combinatorial nature of the number of solutions. (Our finite-element arm model has on the order of 10/sup 13/ possible solutions.) Thus, we present an iterative technique which alternately pares down the size of the solution space and then locates sources one at a time. Examples demonstrating the power of our algorithm are included.

  • Investigation of the effect of fiber diameter variability via recording from tendon via of single fiber electromyography

    In this preliminary study,two muscle fibers which one of them had a constant fiber diameter and the other had a variable fiber diameter were created by using an EMG simulator. Single Muscle Fiber Action Potentials (SMFAPs) were recorded either from the vicinity of the neuromuscular junction or near the tendon. It was intended to reveal the relationship between the time dispersions of these electrical activities and the differences of muscle fiber diameters. Hence it is considered that the the difference between the diameters of muscle fibers contributing to these electrical activities can be estimated.

  • A sensory feedback control model of neuromuscular systems

    We have developed a computer model to examine the inter-working relationships between Renshaw cell recurrent inhibition of /spl alpha/-motoneurons and /spl beta/-motoneuron innervation of spindle intrafusal muscles, two of the several feedback pathways modulating muscle force generation. To restore motor function after paralysis or injury is to restore coordinated control of muscle force generation. A better understanding of interactions among those neural circuits in the spinal cord that directly regulate recruitment of /spl alpha/-motoneurons is crucial for achieving the noble goal of restoring motor function for paralyzed people.

  • Sensory feedback system using interferential current for EMG prosthetic hand

    The purpose of this study was to develop a new type of sensory feedback system for myoelectrically controlled biomimetic prosthetic hand. One of the characteristic features of the neuromuscular control system in man is the increase in the compliance around the joint with decreasing activity of the muscle. For the sensory feedback system we used interferential current that use two waves and interfere to synthesize a low frequency in the body. One frequency was fixed at 5000 Hz and the other frequency was changed from 2000 Hz; to 4900 Hz. As the result stimulus frequency in the body was changed from 100 Hz to 3000 Hz. By the experiments we measured that the subjects could distinguish the change of stimulus frequency and confirmed that the interference current is useful method for sensory feedback system of a prosthetic hand. As a future task, we will try to produce a sensory feedback device for a prosthetic hand, using the interference current.

  • Application of Nonlinear Model Predictive Controller for Fes-Assisted Standing Up in Paraplegia

    Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a method of restoring functional movements in patients of spinal cord injury that electrically induces muscle contractions. Nonlinear dynamics of paraplegics during standing up and limits of the physiological actuators suggest "nonlinear model predictive control" as a good candidate to follow desired trajectory and maintaining standing no need to learning or tuning many parameters such as many nonlinear controllers that had been used previously. In this work, the theoretical possibility of FES assisted standing up in paraplegic patient is studied using nonlinear model predictive control approach by computer simulation. The proposed controller shows good tracking behavior for ankle, knee and hip joint angles in simulated paraplegic standing up and improves patient safety because of considering constraints in control

  • Multichannel FES system with distributed microstimulators

    This work describes a newly developed implantable multichannel stimulation system using distributed stimulation modules, manufactured in the form of small glass capsules with a stimulating electrode on each end The modules, microstimulators, are powered from an external antenna using a 2 MHz amplitude modulated carrier containing stimulation parameters data. Using 36 bit command strings, modules are individually addressed and programmed to deliver a stimulation pulse of a certain amplitude, width, and shape. The repetition rate at which a particular module is addressed represents the stimulation frequency. Up to 256 modules can be addressed and controlled from one external antenna.
