Abstract : Electrical stimulation ES has been applied since 1961 for the correction of hemiplegic drop foot. One main drawback of the technique is the occurrence of early fatigue. Therefore, it is essential to predict force generation for precise ES closed loop control when the stimulated muscle becomes fatigued. This work aims to predict ankle torque using stimulus evoked EMG eEMG during different muscle fatigue states. Five healthy subjects participated in our study. Conventional stimulation for drop foot correction was applied by surface stimulation in sitting position. The results showed that during long-term stimulation the generated torque gradually declined due to muscle fatigue, the muscle activity EMG performed quite differently in different fatigue level. In this work, we carried out the torque prediction with an adapted parameters model according to muscle fatigue state by reidentification using the latest measurement. The prediction was improved with 21%~90.9% comparing to the fixed parameters model. The results revealed a promising approach to use evoked EMG for fatigue compensation in the application of drop foot correction.
