Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is useable to restore in part the lost leg function of paraplegic patients. For this purpose an eight channel stimulation system was developed to activate via standard hydrogel surface electrodes quadriceps and gluteus muscles, peroneal reflex and either adductor muscles or any other muscle group according to patients(More)

Context/objective: To examine the effects of transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation (tSCS) on lower-limb spasticity. Design: Interventional pilot study to produce preliminary data. Participants: Three subjects with chronic motor-incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI) who could walk ≥10 m. Interventions: Two interconnected stimulating skin electrodes (Ø 5 cm)(More)

During the last decade we contributed to rehabilitation in aging studying effects of physical exercise induced by Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) in the special case of Spinal Cord Injury patients affected by complete injury of the Conus Cauda, a syndrome in which the denervated leg muscles are fully disconnected from the nervous system. Denervated(More)

In order to better understand the organization of the locomotor control system, we examined the temporal patterns of distal hindlimb muscle responses to brief electrical stimulation of cutaneous nerves during walking on a treadmill. Electromyographic recordings were made from twelve muscles; stimuli were applied individually to three nerves at random times(More)
