Abstract: This study presents the development of paraplegic muscle model with Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS). A series of experiments using Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) with different stimulation frequencies, pulse width and pulse duration to investigate the impact on muscle output torque are conducted. The data that is obtained is used to develop the paraplegic muscle model. The 500 training data and 300 testing data set are used in the development of muscle model. The muscle model thus developed is validated with clinical data from one paraplegic subject and in comparison with two other muscle models from previous researchers. The ANFIS muscle model is found to be the most accurate muscle model representing paraplegic muscle model. The established model is then used to predict the behaviour of the underlying system and will be used in the future for the design and evaluation of various control strategies.
