There are many challenges in designing neuroprostheses and one of them is to maintain proper axon selectivity in all situations. This project is based on an electrode that is implanted into a fascicle in a peripheral nerve and used to provide tactile sensory feedback of a prosthetic arm. This fascicle can undergo mechanical deformation during every day motion. This work aims to characterize the effect of fascicle deformation on axon selectivity and recruitment when electrically stimulated using hybrid modeling.
