    Abstract

    Force recruitment curves have been determined using stimulation with an intraneural wire electrode. The recruitment curves vary with the position of the electrode in the fiber bundle. The results recruitment curves depends on the position of the electrode seem to support previous findings which indicated that the low density of nodes of Rauvier and a possible clusteriug of motor fibers within the fiber bundle might have a major impact on the efficacy of intraneural electrical stimulation.
