A novel, anatomically-accurate model of a tibialis anterior muscle is used to investigate the electro-physiological properties of denervated muscles following functional electrical stimulation. The model includes a state-of-the-art description of cell electro-physiology. The main objective of this work is to develop a computational framework capable of(More)
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is a technique that uses applied electric fields to elicit a functional response from nerve and muscle tissue. It can be used as a movement augmentation tool for people with peripheral nerve damage as well as a rehabilitation technique for stroke patients. Mathematical models are an important tool that can be used to(More)
Surface electrical stimulation of denervated skeletal muscles has been used as a method to induce muscle contraction. However, questions still remain as to how to achieve a desired contraction or how to selectively activate parts of a given skeletal muscle. To begin to address these issues, a detailed biophysically based model, incorporating full fibre(More)
