An IC-Based Controllable Stimulator for Respiratory Muscle Stimulation Investigations

Abstract : — Functional Electrical Stimulation can be used to restore motor functions loss consecutive to spinal cord injury, such as respiratory deficiency due to paralysis of ventilatory muscles. This paper presents a fully configurable IC-centered stimulator designed to investigate muscle stimulation paradigms. It provides 8 current stimulation channels with high-voltage compliance and real-time operation capabilities, to enable a wide range of FES applications. The stimulator can be used in a standalone mode, or within a closed-loop setup. Primary in vivo results show successful drive of respiratory muscles stimulation using a computer-based dedicated controller.
