Brief Biography

I studied electrical engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg in Germany from 1992 to 1997. After this I spent three years at the University of Glasgow in Scotland at the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the Centre of Rehabilitation Engineering working towards my PhD thesis Feedback Control of Cycling in Spinal Cord Injury using Functional Electrical Stimulation. From December 2001 until April 2006 I have been working as research assistant and project leader at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems (Magdeburg, Germany) in the Systems and Control Theory Group. Since 2006 I am holding a position as senior researcher in the Control Systems Group headed by Prof. Jörg Raisch at the Technische Universität Berlin. In this group I manage the research focuses "Vibration control and energy harvesting on lightweight structures” and “Automation in Medicine”. I am co-founder of the start-up SensorStim Neurotechnology GmbH.

Updates

We have published an article on "Inertial-Sensor-Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation for Swimming in Paraplegics" in the IEEE Control Systems Magazine in December 2020.

C. Wiesener, T. Seel, L. Spieker, A. Niedeggen, T. Schauer. Inertial-Sensor-Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation for Swimming in Paraplegics: Enabling a Novel Hybrid Exercise Modality. IEEE Control Systems Magazine, 40 (6):117–135, 2020.

Award: We won the first price at the fifth "Forum Junge Spitzenforscher" 2018 for our recent research on Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) assisted swimming after spinal cord injury. Aim of this year's event was to present practical ideas from innovative fundamental research in the field of mobility. Please watch our FES swimming video. The paraplegic swimmer improves his speed and body posture by the controlled functional electrical stimulation.

Latest overview of our FES research at TU Berlin:
