• Device
  • Unfortunately, conventional neuroprosthetic techniques are limited by a myriad of factors that include, but are not limited to, a lack of characterization of non-linear input/output system dynamics, mechanical coupling, limited number of degrees of freedom, high power consumption, large device size, and rapid onset of muscle fatigue.

  • motor
  • In 2010, 36.5% of SCI resulted from motor vehicle accidents, 28.5% from falls, 14% from violence (including gunshot wounds), 9% from sports accidents, and 11% from other incidences not reported in detail ( National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, 2013 ). (frontiersin.org)
