Abstract

Nowadays, most of the software for electrostimulation is made with specific purposes, and in some cases they have complicated user interfaces and large, bulky designs that deter usability and acceptability. A novel Human Computer Interaction framework was developed enabling the end user to configure and control an electrostimulator, surpassing the specific use of several electrostimulator software. In the configuration the user is able to compile different types of electrical impulses (modes) in a temporal session, and this session can be actuated in the control. To help the user in creating any type of protocol (session) we devised three standard impulse generator (rectangular, sin and triangular) and a new way of creating electrical impulses by drawing, then fitting this data and process it with a mathematical algorithm for finding simple equations to describe the data. With it, the user has the possibility to choose the best equation that fits the draw and store it mathematically structured, thus adding not only a draw editor, but also an equation editor. Therefore, we provide a tool for clinical, sports and investigation where the user is free to produce their own protocols by sequentially compile electrical impulses.
