  author={Brian M Smith and P. Hunter Peckham and Michael W. Keith and Dennis D. Roscoe},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering},
Through the use of semicustom integrated circuit technology, an implantable muscle stimulator has been developed. The unit is small, lightweight, has low power consumption, and is intended for permanent usage. The stimulator circuitry is externally controlled and powered by a single encoded radio frequency carrier. Up to eight independently controlled stimulus output channels are provided, with output channel selection, stimulus pulse width, and stimulus pulse frequency under external control… CONTINUE READING
