Abstract

In immobilized patients, like paraplegic subjects, due to absence of leg muscle contraction, venous return to the heart is reduced and this may induce important diseases to the cardio-circulatory system. The application to legs of a mechanical stimulation operated by an Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) device, in replacing striate muscle pump on limb veins, may recover venous return to the heart, thus restoring correct cardio-circulatory performance. This paper deals with the study of an effective way to control such a device. Based on the numerical simulation of the human-machine system, the paper investigates and proposes an effective control solution.
