Human Interface for a Neuroprothesis Remotely Control

Abstract

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) and Surface Electromyography (sEMG) have been widely explored by the scientific community for the rehabilitation of individuals with motor deficits due to stroke. The literature shows the benefits of sEMG-activated NMES use in both motor rehabilitation and neural plasticity stimulation. Currently, there is a strong tendency to expand the clinical environment, and the internet can be used by healthcare professionals to do detailed follow-up and interact with their patients remotely. This work presents a neuroprothesis activated by sEMG that allows configuration and monitoring of usage parameters remotely. Two control platforms were developed for different user profiles; health professionals (Web Interface) and neuroprosthesis users (Smartphone Application).
