Research Grants & Projects

Development of implantable volitional controlled electrical stimulation device for treatment of facial paralysis
Project Year: Apr 2011 - Mar 2014
For the treatment of established facial paralysis, we primary aimed to develop volitional controlled implantable functional electrical stimulation device. Design of electrical circuit which is minimized for implantation was optimised. Therefore, w...
Establishment of walking ability improvement program using the auditory rhythm
Project Year: Apr 2011 - Mar 2013
We determined the effects of relative timing during locomotion control, as reflected by rhythm generation and changes in muscle activities, when young, community-based elderly, and hemiplegic persons walked at different paces, and investigated cha...
Development of combined electrical stimulator with AFO for reorganizing central nervous system.
This study aimed to develop a light weight small size electrical stimulator for a lower limbs paralysis to recover their functions by reorganizing of central nervous system in daily living. The movement and EMG of the lower limb in two stroke subj...
Neruo-rehabilitation with cybernetic orthosis
We produced a cybernetic sleeve with power-assisted functional electrical stimulation (FES) device. It consisted of novel small FES device covered by mesh wire cloths. It is easy to put it on the hemiparetic forearm. Power-assisted FES induces gre...
Development of volitional control transcutaneous electrical stimulator for restoring swallowing function
