Abstract

A model is presented that represents a large body of data on safety and damage levels of electrical stimulation. The predictions of the model are consistent with known principles of current flow and known mechanisms of damage around stimulating electrodes. It is proposed that limits on levels of electrical stimulation take into account the location of the electrode relative to the stimulated tissue and these limits can be computed algorithmically from the model.
