Hindsight Experience Replay Improves Reinforcement Learning for Control of a MIMO Musculoskeletal Model of the Human Arm
Cervical spinal cord injuries often result in tetraplegia, causing decreased patient independence and quality of life. Functional electrical stimulation (FES), when combined with an appropriate controller, can be used to restore motor function by electrically stimulating the neuromuscular system. In... Read more

A Hybrid Robotic System for Arm Training of Stroke Survivors: Concept and First Evaluation
                      This work describes a hybrid robotic system for arm recovery after stroke, combining EMG-triggered Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) with a passive exoskeleton for upper limb suspension. The system was developed within the European project RETRAINER and was used in a... Read more

The Fabrication, Implantation, and Stability of Intraspinal Microwire Arrays in the Spinal Cord of Cat and Rat
Intraspinal microstimulation (ISMS) is currently under investigation for its ability to restore function following spinal cord injury and aid in addressing basic investigations of the spinal cord in feline and murine (rat) models. In this report we describe the procedures... Read more

Assessments of Muscle Oxygenation and Cortical Activity Using Functional Near-infrared Spectroscopy in Healthy Adults During Hybrid Activation
Hybrid activation (HA), patterned electrical stimulation (ES) superimposed on attempted voluntary movement in close synchrony, can augment muscle force output. It has been proposed for limb function restoration and neuromodulation. Limited studies have been performed to investigate the influences of... Read more
