Clinical trial starting in Cleveland to help patients with paralysis regain movement

CLEVELAND — A groundbreaking clinical trial is starting in Cleveland soon, and researchers are currently looking for participants. The program is called ReHAB — which stands for “Reconnecting the Hand and Arm to the Brain.” Essentially,...

Dr. Monica Perez’s Team Shows First Evidence of Using Cortical Targets to Improve Motor...

Monica A. Perez, P.T., Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Neurological Surgery and The Miami Project, and colleagues, recently published A novel cortical target to enhance hand motor output in humans with spinal cord injury...

REACT: Spinal Cord Injury Recovery

REACT's Neuro-Restorative program is for those seeking a comprehensive recovery through customized, one-on-one neuromuscular training. https://youtu.be/JcA2pw4JnU4 REACT is committed to providing a comprehensive activity-based restorative therapies (ABRT) program for individuals with spinal cord injuries and similar...

Brain-computer interface advance allows fast, accurate typing by people with paralysis

In a Stanford-led research report, three participants with movement impairment controlled an onscreen cursor simply by imagining their own hand movements. A clinical research publication led by Stanford University investigators has demonstrated that a brain-to-computer...

Big Improvements to Brain-Computer Interface

Newly developed “glassy carbon” electrodes transmit more robust signals to restore motion in people with damaged spinal cords. When people suffer spinal cord injuries and lose mobility in their limbs, it’s a neural signal processing...

UCLA researcher tackles paralysis with electrical stimulation devices

A UCLA professor is helping paralyzed individuals regain use of their limbs through electric stimulation of the spinal cord. In 2015, Reggie Edgerton, the director of the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory at UCLA, developed a robotic...

Spinal cord injury patients may benefit from using exoskeleton earlier in treatment

Cumming School study first in Canada to examine whether using robotic device immediately following injuries promotes recovery Researchers from the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine are the first in Canada to examine...

Medical Devices for REHABILITATION Affordable, efficient, user friendly and a plug&play complete solution for patients with paralysis. Technology that is changing the way patients see life. REHABILITATION FOR DIFFERENT CAUSES OF PARALYSIS "Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is an...

Measuring severity of spinal cord injuries

Injuries to the spinal cord partially or completely disrupt the neural pathways between the brain and the limbs. The consequences for the representation of the affected limbs in the brain can be drastic. Researchers...

Bioelectronic devices to improve quality of life after SCI

https://youtu.be/QABmt_m3Y-k Bioelectronic devices that record and stimulate the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves have potential to dramatically improve function after injury or disease. For example, brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) can extract the intention to move...
