  • The image shows the finite element (FE) solution for the electric field (heat map) and the current flow (arrows) resulting from the simulation of transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TES) in a 28 cm section of the lower leg (just below the knee to just above the ankle).
    These simulations allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of transcutaneous electrical stimulation variables such as electrode shape and positioning, and stimulation magnitude on neural activation.
