Spinal Cord Injury:

A Research Study Opportunity

Researchers from Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation and the Texas Biomedical Device Center at The University of Texas at Dallas have teamed up to assess if implanted vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) coupled with rehabilitation is able to improve recovery of arm function in people living with a spinal cord injury. Therapy will take place over six weeks and follow-ups will occur at 1, 3, and 6 months after therapy ends. Participants will be compensated for their time in the study.

Key Eligibility Requirements:

• Must be a person living with cervical spinal cord injury for at least 12 months
• Must be between the ages of 18 and 64 years
• Must demonstrate some arm and hand movement
