Abstract

Pathological tremor is the most prevalent movement disorder, and is not effectively managed in a significant proportion of patients. In addition, the epidemiology and neurophysiology of tremors is yet not understood. This abstract summarizes our work on TREMOR project, which aimed at the development and validation of a wearable neuroprosthesis for tremor management. This neuroprosthesis comprised a multimodal interface to parameterize tremor during voluntary activities, and a functional electrical stimulation controller that attenuated tremor amplitude without affecting voluntary movement. Experimental results are reviewed, showing that both objectives were successfully reached.
