Neuromuscular Incapacitation

Neuromuscular Incapacitation or NMI, is a situation in which the individual has lost the ability to control their muscles. This is possible via electric pulse with current technology, but causes considerable discomfort to the individual. Other methods are much sought after.

Neuromuscular Incapacitation is important in full sensory simulation, because whilst the user is controlling their avatar form, you do not want their physical body flailing about copying the avatar's movements whilst the owner of that body is not paying attention to what it is doing. Such could easily result in injury outside of the simulation.
