After spinal cord injury, functions of the lower urinary tract may be disrupted. A wearable device with surface electrodes which can effectively control the bladder functions would be highly beneficial to the patients. A trans-rectal pudendal nerve stimulator may provide such a solution. However, the major limiting factor in such a stimulator is the high(More)
OBJECTIVE Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide, with a lifetime risk of around 20%. Current techniques do not allow clinicians to objectively assess tissue abnormality during endoscopy and perioperatively. A method capable of objectively assessing samples in real time and which can be included in minimally invasive diagnostic and(More)
After spinal cord injury, lower urinary tract functions may be disrupted. Trans-rectal stimulation of the pudendal nerve may enable patients to regain these functions via minimally invasive means. Using a finite element model of a wearable trans-rectal stimulator in the pelvic region, and a computational model of mammalian nerve fiber, various electrode(More)
