  1. The number of involved array elements (No.) of the VEs for hand opening (VE1) and finger flexion(VE3) are listed. I denotes the applied stimulation current identified during the identification, here presented in mA. pw denotes the corresponding pulse width, here presented in μs. For the semi-automatic method, also the shape of the utilized VE model is listed, where circ. corresponds to a circular shape and rect. marks a rectangular shape. An ’x’ marks cases, where no suitable VE was identified
