Abstract

To help patients suffering disabilities caused by damage to neural system, engineers have developed new methods and devices. A recently emerging technique is called Functional Electrical Stimulation which is the application of electrical charge for stimulating damaged organ nerves and recover some muscular functions. In this paper, we aim to review the most recent developments in neural prostheses and their structures which have been designed and built to apply this technique to patients’ nervous system.
