Functional electrical stimulation (FES)-induced movements of the upper extremity using the electromyography (EMG)-based stimulation data, which were created on the basis of EMG analysis of elbow flexion and extension in a normal human subject, were examined. As a result of the FES to the elbow flexors and extensors in another normal subject, smooth and reproducible elbow flexion and extension were controlled. This result seems to indicate not only an advantage of EMG-based stimulation data in the FES but also a great potential of FES as a new technique for the functional anatomy of the human extremities.
