EPIDURAL STIMULATION IN ADULTS

Epidural stimulation is used experimentally by surgically implanting an electrode array over the lower spinal cord to activate the neural circuits to better understand how the human spinal cord executes movement, standing and walking. Effects have been reported by research participants in these studies related to other consequences of spinal cord injury such as heart, pulmonary and bladder function. We have ongoing studies to better understand these research findings.
