Abstract : Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), perform Sitting Pivot Transfer (SPT) motion around fifteen times a day using upper extremities. It can lead to upper limbs pain and often shoulder complications. In this paper, we investigate the influence of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) on SPT motion of a paraplegic person. First, we proposed to develop a dynamic optimization method in order to predict SPT motion of an able‐bodied subject. This approach has been validated by comparing the computed SPT trajectories with the ones measured during the experiment with an able‐bodied subject. Then, we used the optimization tool to analyze the influence of FES on the SPT maneuver of paraplegic persons. Our results suggest that FES can decrease arm participation during the transfer motion of a paraplegic person.
