Abstract

Finite element models of helical electrodes were utilized in conjunction with nerve fiber models to determine the efficacy of various changes in helical electrode design in improving nerve fiber recruitment. It was determined that an increase in the helical overlap angle does not facilitate recruitment of smaller diameter nerve fibers. The simulations led to some strategies that could potentially improve the electrode design.
