The main point of this study was to learn about the positioning and size of the femoral nerve and its branches throughout the thigh and to gather information regarding the order and amount of fascicles innervating the muscles in the thigh
The information collected can then be used in the development of nerve-cuff electrodes used to restore movement to patients suffering from spinal cord injuries.
