Non-intrusive real-time breathing pattern detection and classification for automatic abdominal functional electrical stimulation.

Abstract

Abdominal Functional Electrical Stimulation (AFES) has been shown to improve the respiratory function of people with tetraplegia. The effectiveness of AFES can be enhanced by using different stimulation parameters for quiet breathing and coughing. The signal from a spirometer, coupled with a facemask, has previously been used to differentiate between these… (More)
