Abstract

For pt. I see ibid., vol. 5, no. 4, p. 331-40 (1997). This is the second of a pair of papers which describe an investigation into the feasibility of providing artificial balance to paraplegics using electrical stimulation of the paralyzed muscles. By bracing the body above the shanks, only stimulation of the plantar flexors is necessary. This arrangement prevents any influence from the intact neuromuscular system above the spinal cord lesion. Here, the authors present experimental results from intact and paraplegic subjects.
