Abstract

An implantable telemetrically controlled, two-channel nerve stimulator has been designed. This device (14x4x2 mm) will be implanted directly on the peroneal nerve and used to improve the gait of people suffering from foot drop. As the stimulator is very small and may be placed deep in the lower limb, the challenge is to get sufficient energy transferred from the external coils to the receiver. The research presented here shows the volume in which the stimulator receives the energy to stimulate the nerve properly, while keeping the power consumption of the transmitter acceptable for battery supply.
