Abstract : The knowledge and prediction of the behavior of electrically activated muscles are important requisites for the movement restoration by FES in spinal cord injured subjects. The whole parameter's identification of a physiological musculoskeletal model for FES is investigated in this work. The model represents the knee and its associated quadriceps muscle. The identification protocol is noninvasive and based on the in-vivo experiments on paraplegic subjects. The isometric and nonisometric data was obtained by stimulating the quadriceps muscles of 3 paraplegic subjects through surface electrodes. A cross validation has been carried out using nonisometric data set. The normalized RMS errors between the identified model and the measured knee response are presented for each subject.
