Functional Electrical Stimulation
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is another term for neuromusclar electrical stimulation. It is an umbrella term to describe the process of using electrical currents, and electrode arrays to reactivate the peripheral nervous system in individuals who have suffered damage to the spinal cord or other location in their peripheral nervous system between the target muscle and the brain.

Its early 2009, and the University of Southampton, in the UK, is developing electrical stimulation technology, designed to help stroke patients relearn movement, by duplicating the natural, original nerve impulses. The technology is a direct offshoot of work to decode the electrical signals of the peripheral nervous system.
A mis-fire in the teledildonics industry, this early attempt at sexual stimulation in VR fell short after it was discovered it had a minor side effect - bodily secretions caused a lethal electrical discharge.
A different paradigm in power generation for implants and prosthetics, combines electrical generation and storage in a single thin three-layer flexible ribbon. Piezoelectric in nature, it builds long-term storage into the electrical ggeneration process. No other battery or powersource required.
