Development of Signal Processing Toolbox for Assessing Neuromuscular Response during Electrical Stimulation

The aim of the study is to explore the development of instrumentation of protocols which will help in understanding the effect of electrical stimulations on the muscle activations in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and able bodied (AB) groups.
