Within the European project MUNDUS, an assistive framework was developed for the support of arm and hand functions during daily life activities in severely impaired people. This contribution aims at designing a feedback control system for Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to enable reaching functions in people with no residual voluntary control(More)
MUNDUS is an assistive framework for recovering direct interaction capability of severely motor impaired people based on arm reaching and hand functions. It aims at achieving personalization, modularity and maximization of the user’s direct involvement in assistive systems. To this, MUNDUS exploits any residual control of the end-user and can be adapted to(More)
– This contribution investigates the restoration of reaching function in patients with upper motor neuron lesion. Within the EU project MUNDUS a novel control strategy for a neuro-prosthesis has been developed. Functional arm movements are generated by applying controlled Neuro-Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to the shoulder deltoid muscle and the(More)
Upper extremity motion in humans is complex and irregular. An orthosis designer cannot count on cyclic procedures or repetitions. When designing a bracing system for the upper limb, this complexity is challenging and therefore it is essential to know about the necessary torques, angular velocities and joint ranges. In this study, we took a closer look at(More)
— For restoration of reaching function in patients with upper motor neuron lesion a noval control strategy for a neuroprosthesis was developed within the EU project MUNDUS. By applying controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) to the shoulder deltoid muscle and the biceps, functional arm movements can be achieved. An exoskeleton with three DOF(More)
