Objective.  To evaluate the ability to relieve shoulder pain by implanting ceramic-case versions of radiofrequency microstimulators (RFM) in paralyzed shoulder muscles. Materials and Methods.  A 66-year-old man, who had left-sided chronic hemiplegia due to a stroke five years previously, had developed shoulder subluxation resulting in pain. Two RFM devices(More)
A preliminary clinical study using implantable microstimulators to facilitate recovery of upper limb function in hemiplegia Abstract This paper presents an overview of the design of a preliminary clinical study to develop and test the feasibility of a triggered open-loop system using radio frequency controlled microstimulators. The study is in upper limb(More)
Diaphragm pacing stimulation (DPS) for ventilator-dependent patients provides several advantages over conventional techniques such as phrenic nerve pacing or mechanical ventilator support. To date, the only existing system for DPS uses lead electrodes, percutaneously attached to an external pulse generator (PG). However, for a widespread use of this(More)
