Force, Pain and Electrode Size in the Electrical Stimulation of Leg Muscles

Abstract

IN patients with paralysed limbs, the existing musculature might be used as the motor drive if suitably programmed stimuli were applied directly to the muscles or to the motor nerves. Our particular concern is with this problem and with the development of devices to make possible the locomotion of patients with totally paralysed lower limbs.
