Abstract:The goal of the thesis was to study the effect of electrical stimulation in SCI patients to reduce spasticity in muscles of the leg and to improve gait performance, using both the carryover and the instant effect. To achieve this goal it was necessary to have appropriate spasticity measures for the carry-over effect and the instant effect, thus during rest and gait. Using these measures, we studied the carryover and the instant effect of electrical stimulation on spasticity.
