We performed this study to determine the feasibility of controlling and stabilizing seated posture with functional electrical stimulation (FES) after paralysis from spinal cord injury (SCI) using computer simulations and a 3-dimensional model of the hip and trunk. We used the model to approximate the range of postures in the sagittal and transverse planes attainable by a seated subject and to estimate the maximum restorative moment that could be produced in a neutral posture in response to a… CONTINUE READING
