Commercially available electrical muscle stimulators (EMS) provide functional electrical stimulation and are interfaced with reciprocating gait orthosis (RGO). The system which has been developed is described here as an EMS-RGO. Advantages of the system include: medically prescriptable subsystems available from manufacturers, and commercially recommended subsystems for applications such as gait training. The system itself employs four EMS units worn on a belt. It is controlled by remote… CONTINUE READING
