A computer control system which allows precise control of movement in paralyzed muscle through functional electrical stimulation. The system includes a computer operated at a programming center under physician control, an electronically erasable and programmable read only memory removable cartridge and a remotely located second computer for controlling the operation of appropriately configured exercise equipment. By using this system, a physician can set work limits for a patient, and the patient can then exercise essentially under a physician's control but without the physician's direct and continuous supervision. In a preferred embodiment, records of the intensity and length of the workout are kept on the cartridge so that the physician can recall the data and get a graphical printout from the computer.
