PNS Invasive Electromagnetic Interface

SIZING OF A MULTI-COIL TESSELLATION FOR THE PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULATION

The scope of my thesis was the modelling and feasibility analysis of a cuff neural interfaced for the electromagnetic stimulation (like the TMS) of the Peripheral Nervous System .
