Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Sliding Mode control of Walking Using Intramuscular Electrical Stimulation in Rat Model

Abed Khorasani; Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume 5, Issue 3 , June 2011, , Pages 245-255

  During the last decade, functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) has been proposed as a potential technique for restoring motor function in paralyzed limbs. A major challenge to restoring a desired functional limb movement through the use of intramuscular stimulation is the development of a robust ...  Read More

Optimization of Stimulation Patterns in Paraplegic Walker-Assisted Walking using Functional Electrical Stimulation

Vahab Nekoukar; Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume 4, Issue 4 , June 2010, , Pages 327-336

  One major limitation of walker-supported walking using functional electrical stimulation (FES) in paraplegic subjects is the high energy expenditure and the high upper body effort. Paraplegics should exert high amount of hand force to stabilize the body posture and to compensate lack of the sufficient ...  Read More

Automatic Ocular Artifact Suppression From Eeg Data By Using Statistics And Time-Frequency Properties Of Independent Components

Hosna Ghandeharion; Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume 3, Issue 3 , June 2009, , Pages 199-211

  Contamination of Electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings with different kinds of artifacts is the main obstacle to the analysis of EEG data. Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is now a widely accepted tool for detection of artifact in EEG data. This component-based method segregates artifactual activities ...  Read More

An Adaptive Fuzzy Control with Hierarchical Structure for Controlling the Knee-joint angle by using Functional Electrical Stimulation

Hamid Reza Kobravi; Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume 2, Issue 4 , June 2008, , Pages 335-349

  In this paper an adaptive robust fuzzy controller based on sliding mode control (SMC) approach is proposed to control the knee joint position using quadriceps electrical stimulation and it has been tested on three subjects. The proposed method is based on SMC. The main advantage of SMC derives from the ...  Read More

Neural Network Modeling Of Electrically Stimulated Muscle Under Non-Isometric Conditions

Abbas Erfanian Omidvar

Volume -2, Issue 1 , July 2005, , Pages 81-92

  This paper is concerned with developing a force-generating model of electrically stimulated muscle under non-isometric condition. Hill-based muscle models have been the most popular structure. This type of muscle model was constructed as a combination of different independent blocks (i.e., activation ...  Read More
