Abstract

VARYSTIM uses the property of Pulse Width Modulation for designing a portable stimulator both for nerves and muscles. The level of stimulation ranges from minimum ±1. 6mA to maximum ±2. 5mA with multiple frequency settings. To reduce the circuit complexity varystim can be designed in a micro level with low voltage of 9V overcoming the disadvantage of a conventional microstimulator. It is exercised in particularly to aid the rehabilitation of people with paraplegia. For that application, a low cost, portable, battery powered muscular stimulator is designed.
