A major issue to be addressed in the development of neural interfaces for prosthetic control is the need for somatosensory feedback. Here, we investigate two possible strategies: electrical stimulation of either dorsal root ganglia (DRG) or primary somatosensory cortex (S1). In each approach, we must determine a model that reflects the representation of(More)
Two groups of children with excessive genu valgum or genu varum were treated with a partial epiphysiodesis. In group I (16 extremities) a predictive chart was used to determine the appropriate bone age to perform the partial epiphysiodesis, and in group II (15 extremities) the age for the procedure was estimated. The partial epiphysiodesis was performed by(More)
In recent years, much attention has been focused on developing stimulating strategies for somatosensory prostheses. One application of such a somatosensory prosthesis is to supply proprioceptive feedback in a brain machine interface application. One strategy for the development of such a stimulation regime is to mimic the natural representation of limb(More)
