Abstract

A novel sensor system is presented utilizing bending sensitive bilayers. The sensor system detects the contraction-dynamics of the upper femoral musculature during electric stimulation for diagnostics of muscle fibre recruitment and muscle twitch-dynamics in functional electrical stimulation.
