Functional Electrical Stimulation requires an accurate model of electrically stimulated muscles to control the muscle contraction force. Characterization of electrically stimulated muscle is complex because of the non-linearity and time-varying nature of the system with interdependent variables. The muscle model consists of relatively well known time-invariant passive properties and uncertain time-variant active properties. In this research a new approach for estimating nonlinear active properties of the electrically stimulated quadriceps muscle group is investigated. The objective of this study is to develop a model that could be used to describe active joint properties including continuous-time nonlinear activation dynamics and nonlinear static contraction. As an example, the modelling of a freely swinging lower leg by electrical stimulation of the quadriceps is considered.
