Commercial FES systems are currently being evaluated for limited control of hand functions, bladder emptying and walking. The functional capabilities offered by the best among those devices leave a great deal to be desired. There are several major problems associated with FES devices that restrict their use as the ideal means for restoring lost functions: the early muscle fatigue and the crude control of limb functions.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/2798||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
