Electrical stimulation as medium for sensory–motorical information transfer

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The methods hitherto used to substitute the missing information about the position or weight transfer in spinal cord injured patients are presented, with a special emphasis being placed on the information transfer in prosthetics and functional electric stimulation. The method of information transfer through the skin receptors is described in more detail. A spinal cord  injured patient must be able to press the cord switch at the right moment in order to start the next phase of gait cycle. The use of transcutaneous electrical stimulation causing no muscle contraction is dealt with, and the experimental equipment prepared for this purpose is presented. The results are presented graphically.
