Past projects we have worked on include:
- an implanted nerve root stimulator which is in clinical trials
- the development of FES cycling systems using surface systems for patients with both complete and incomplete spinal lesions. As featured on “Tomorrow’s World” on BBC1. More information on the principle of FES cycling here.
- development of a conditional stimulator system for incontinence
- investigations into the use of physiological signals (EMG or ENG) for control of stimulation.
- the development of closed-loop control of standing in paraplegics
- a study of endogenous spinal activity in patients with spinal lesions
