Abstract

Robust controller designs for electrically stimulated muscle systems critically depend on muscle nonlinearities. Experimental and mathematical modeling results are presented which demonstrate that nonlinear muscle length-tension curves cause magnitude dependent stability conditions for proportional closed-loop positioning systems. These results have applications in the design of clinical neural prostheses for returning function to spinal cord injured persons.
