Abstract

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) had become a viable option for movement restoration, therapy and rehabilitation in neurologically impaired subjects. Although the number of such subjects increase globally but only few orthosis devices combine with the technique are available and are costly. A factor resulting to this could be stringent requirement for such devices to have passed clinical acceptance. In that regard a new approach which utilize the patient wheelchair as support and also a novel control system to synchronize the stimulation such that the movement is accomplished safely was proposed. It is expected to improve well-being, social integration, independence, cost, and healthcare delivery.
