Functional electrical stimulation (FES) has been used in the rehabilitation of stroke patients. It is important to know how to stimulate the muscles when using FES. Many control methods have been used to derive the required electrical stimulation patterns. However, these models were not developed based on biomechanical model of human neuromuscular system, thus can not account for sophisticated neurological control strategies during human movements. Based on our developed electromyography (EMG) driven model, we have created a biomechanical model to estimate the corrective increases in muscle activation patterns needed for a person following stroke to walk with an improved normal gait.
