    Abstract

    The Hoffman reflex which has applications in assessment of nervous system damage in stroke, spinal injury, Parkinson's disease and other conditions is studied here both practically and theoretically. Using recorded Hoffman reflex data a model is proposed that captures the qualitative behaviour of the phenomenon and allows investigation of how different waveform morphologies and patterns of recruitment can be related to underlying physiological variables.
