This study demonstrates in a novel way how volume and shape are restored to denervated degenerated muscles due to a special pattern of electrical stimulation. To this purpose, Spiral Computer Tomography (CT) and special image processing tools were used to develop a method to isolate the rectus femoris from other muscle bellies in the thigh and monitor(More)
OBJECTIVES A new non-invasive method was developed to analyse macroscopic and microscopic structural changes of human skeletal muscle based on processing techniques of medical images, here exemplified by monitoring progression and recovery of long-term denervation by home based functional electrical stimulation. METHODS Spiral computer tomography images(More)
In the frame of the EU-funded RISE project, patients with lower motor neuron lesion and denervated and degenerated muscles are treated with electrical stimulation, with the aim of restoring muscle mass and force. Spiral computer tomography from the hip joint down to the knee joint is used to gather three-dimensional data on the upper leg tissue. These data(More)
