Abstract

For the purpose of trunk stabilization in standing of paraplegic individuals induced by functional electrical stimulation (FES), the feasibility of feedback control of thorax inclination angle was examined. The sagittal and coronal inclination angle could be detected using a pendulum sensors with less than three percent errors. The contractile forces for the movement in anti-gravitational environment were obtained in both the rectus abdominis and erector spinae. The feasibility of the feedback control of thorax inclination angle was demonstrated.
