A novel feedback control method for neuro-prosthetic systems is presented which linearises the static input non-linearity of muscles that are artificially activated by Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). The proposed method controls the activation state (sum of recruited motor units by FES) of the paralysed muscle. This muscle recruitment state is measured by the FES evoked electromyogram (eEMG). Compared to standard control approaches, no cumbersome off-line or online identification of… CONTINUE READING
