The possibility of regaining control over paralyzed muscles by using control signals from normally innervated muscles is discussed. An electronic device which enables a quadriplegic patient to open his right hand by lifting his left shoulder is described. The circuit consists of an EMG amplifier, a modulator, and a stimulator. Existing problems are analyzed and further investigations proposed.
