Hello, I'm a Biomedical Engineering student at the University of Surrey. I'm
trying to simulate stimulation of the flexion withdrawal reflex for a
hemiplegic patient with foot drop. At the moment I'm constructing the Hill
based lumped parameter model to represent the tibialis anterior and
associated connective tissues. I would like to hear if anyone has used such
a model and made ammendments to account for fatigue, spasticity and/or level
of residual control. Also, if anyone has used a molecular model for the
tibialis anterior and perhaps accounted for fatigue, spasticity etc, I would
be very grateful to hear so.

Thanks, Marcus Friday.
