Functional Electrical Stimulation is a commonly used method in clinical rehabilitation and research to trigger useful muscle contractions by electrical stimuli. In this work, we present a stimulation system for transcutaneous electrical stimulation that gives extensive control over the stimulation waveform and the stimulation timing. The system supports(More)
Für die automatisierte Bewertung von Lösungen zu Programmieraufgaben wurde mittlerweile eine Vielzahl an Grader-Programmen zu unterschiedlichen Programmiersprachen entwickelt. Um Lernenden wie Lehrenden Zugang zur möglichst vielen Gradern über das gewohnte LMS zu ermöglichen wird das Konzept einer generischen Web-Serviceschnittstelle (Grappa) vorgestellt,(More)
