In Silico Modelling in Support of Neurostimulation: Device Development, Treatment Optimization and Mechanistic Investigations

In the last decade, there has been an increased interest in proposing, investigating, manufacturing - and therefore in regulating - novel medical approaches and technologies complementary or even competitive to the traditional pharmacological and surgical ones that are aimed at recovering lost body functionalities (e.g., limb movement) or at relieving medical conditions derived from compromised...

Human Anatomical Models, Digital Twins and in silico Clinical Trials in RF Safety Assessment

The use of numerical exposure evaluations performed with high-resolution anatomical models has become an essential part of the safety assessment of radiofrequency (RF) fields over the last two decades, in applications from wireless communication and power transfer to wearable and implanted medical devices. This lecture reviews those applications of human anatomical models, and discusses the... Read more

Neuroplasticity: How Functional Electrical Stimulation Therapy for Reaching and Grasping can be used to Overcome Paralysis

In this lecture I will present a Functional Electrical Stimulation Therapy for reaching and grasping, which does not belong to a typical “garden variety” neuroprostheses that one can commonly find discussed in the literature.  In the literature, the neuroprostheses for grasping are used to replace and substitute function, and patients are expected to depend on...
