Nerve Cut? No Problem

dc.contributor.authorAlowami, Belkees Salem
dc.descriptionSpinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord causing temporary or permanent changes in its function. Spinal sensorimotor networks disconnected from the brain due to SCI can be activated via epidural electrical stimulation (EES) to restore motor activity in humans with paralysis.1 Previously, there was a case of sensorimotor paralysis of the lower extremities where EES restored the ability to stand and the ability to control step-like activity while side-lying or suspended vertically in a body-weight support system (BWS). 2 Training in the presence of EES and multimodal rehabilitation (MMR), was performed for 43 weeks and resulted in stepping on a treadmill, independent from trainer assistance or BWS. It also enabled independent stepping over ground while using a front-wheeled walker with trainer assistance at the hips to maintain balance. This study presents a revolutionary change and a sense of hope to paralysed patientsen_US
