A quantitative evaluation of implanted percutaneous electrodes for FES is required in clinical site. We measured impedance characteristics of the electrodes from outside of the body with the newly developed system. This measurement made it possible to estimate whether the implanted electrode is broken or moved. In addition, it could also provide information about disconnection between the electrodes and the stimulator.
