Rehabilitation for stroke patients or individuals with lower-limb disability
The Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Interactive Cycling System is a tool for lower-limb disability rehabilitation. The system integrates both motor power and muscle power to facilitate the cycling exercise. The motor can be driven to rotate with different speed, while electrical pulses from the system can stimulate the targeted muscles to generate muscle contraction to support the cycling movement, promoting functional recovery.
Problem to be solved:
Gait training requires residual balance and lower limb function which stroke patients and individuals with lower-limb disability often have difficulty. Cycling provides a safe and effective option to strengthen the muscle and provide feedback to the brain through electrical stimulation.
Individuals with stroke or lower-limb disability
Uniqueness and Competitive Advantages:
The cycling system can be used both indoor and outdoor. It can provide stimulation to targeted muscles, which helps to strengthen muscles and allow users to improve muscle coordination.
