Table 1 The execution durations and effective stimulation frequencies during particular searches

From: Automated determination of peripheral nerve stimulation parameters to achieve desired effector response – a procedural routine, preliminary studies and proposal of improvements

Operation Number of various stimuli (i.e., SPV and CEC combinations) tested Number of significant displacements (i.e., mean magnitude > 0.5 mm) Execution duration Effective stimulation frequency [Hz]
Phase 1: Mapping of stimulation parameters with muscle responses (Figure 4A) 768 362 27 min 15 s 1.41
Phase 2: Search for stimulation parameters producing response a (Figure 4B) 133 4 4 min 24 s 1.51
Phase 2: Search for stimulation parameters producing response b (Figure 4C) 265 58 8 min 54 s 1.49
Phase 2: Search for stimulation parameters producing response c (Figure 4D) 259 52 9 min 38 s 1.34
  1. Each stimulus was repeated three times for each combination of allowed SPVs and CECs.
