NetSolve and Functional Electrical Stimulation

Electrical nerve and muscle stimulation is used to overcome bad, missing or lost body functions. In a research project at the Vienna General Hospital functional electrical stimulation of denervated skeletal muscles is studied. The aim is to allow paralyzed people to partially regain abilities like standing up or walking.

FES simulations

The arising mathematical problems in this field requires sophisticated algorithms to solve systems with >1.5e+6 unknowns, which still take hours on a conventional PC to be performed. Using NetSolve this calculations can now be transfered to remote high-tech computers from within the Matlab tool developed to simulate functional electrical stimulation. Moreover NetSolve now also provides the ability to perform different simulation settings simultaneously using the task-farming feature.
