Clinical decision support tools play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between research findings and their application in clinical practice. The primary goals of building a functional prototype for a web-based clinical decision support tool are to validate the concept, gather user feedback for refinement, demonstrate feasibility, and identify and address technical and usability challenges early in development.

Vagus nerve stimulation has emerged as a promising nonpharmacological intervention for a range of medical conditions. Invasive vagus nerve stimulation via implanted stimulators is employed as a noninvasive treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy, congestive heart failure, and major depression. Noninvasive application of electrical stimulation offers advantages such as reduced infection risk and enhanced usability. We aim to investigate the mechanisms underlying non-invasive so-called transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) and optimize its clinical application using computational modeling.

Background Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is a therapeutic approach utilized for a range of conditions, including pain and movement disorders. However, the precise mechanisms underlying the effects of SCS remain mysterious, making clinical decisions often reliant on a trial-and-error methodology....
