A model of a paralyzed hand gripping and lifting an object was developed using anaesthetized cats. Functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) applied to the ankle plantarflexor muscles caused the footpad to press against and grip an object. Electroneurographic activity (ENG) activity generated by skin mechanoreceptors in the footpad was recorded with a cuff(More)
Restoration of the voluntary use of paralyzed limbs using functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) is limited by complex muscle properties and unpredictable load behaviors; closed-loop control of FNS would improve performance but requires reliable sensory feedback modalities. Sensory nerve signals recorded by cuff electrodes provide accurate information(More)
Dylan Thomas, in my view, expresses the only appropriate attitude toward senility and premature death. My inclusion of a brief portion of this poem represents a triumph of Orthomolecular medicine for one elderly man. A few weeks ago, by the side of a pool in Hawaii, C.P., on discovering I would participate in this conference on memory and aging, recited the(More)

Rehabilitation of the Neuro-Motor-System incorporates the physical, neurological – and psychological – aspects of this<lb>domain. Whereas the treatment of the deficits of the physical part of the domain is already well developed, so far little<lb>attention has been paid to the structure of the networks built by the nerve cells to create the functional(More)
