Student project: Energy-efficient and selective stimulation waveforms

Research & development - Eindhoven | About a week ago

In this project, we are exploring the efficiency, and selectivity of stimulation waveforms by analyzing them in the frequency domain. The study's findings will be validated with a prototype stimulator and in-vivo verification.

Student project: Energy-efficient and selective stimulation waveforms

What you will do

  • Literature study on electrical stimulators and stimuli shapes
  • Modelling and comparison of different waveforms for electrical stimulation
  • Designing a setup to test the stimulation waveforms.
  • In-vivo/in-vitro measurements to verify the result
