Computer-directed functional electrical stimulation that employs closed-loop (feedback) technology has been used for rehabilitation of spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. This paper summarizes the most recent developments in our laboratory. First, the design of an adaptive control system is described, and its resultant controllability is reviewed. Second, our current results with the isokinetic leg trainer are summarized with respect to muscular strength and mass and cardiovascular changes in… CONTINUE READING
