Electrical stimulation in eyelid reanimation has been verified in previous studies as a potential treatment for facial nerve paralysis. Design challenges, including physical pain during stimulation, reducing the latency between the natural blink and the artificial blink, and patient-to-patient differences, make it difficult to build this system. In this paper, the design challenges are analyzed in detail, based on which a closed-loop electrochemical stimulation system is proposed. Using our… CONTINUE READING
