The tibial nerve (TN) has three main terminal branches: the medial and lateral plantar nerves and the calcaneal branch (CB), which innervates the foot sole. The design and implantation of nerve cuff electrodes with separate channels for each of these three terminal branches would provide significant sensory information, which can be used in functional electrical stimulation systems to assist standing or to correct foot drop. Detailed quantitative anatomical data about fascicular size and… CONTINUE READING
