Some persons with a spinal cord injury can use functional electrical stimulation (FES) to walk again, but many cannot, and for those that can the walking obtained is limited. This paper argues that muscle models can help improve FES systems, but only if these muscle models are enhanced. Part 1 reviews differences between muscle models for FES systems and those for "natural" movement; FES models emphasize limb angle, demand simplicity, exploit feedback, and grade force through recruitment rather… CONTINUE READING
