    Even if the placement were the same, the stimulation output by pain stimulators is designed to block nerve signals. The kind of stimulation you want needs to activate nerves, not block them. So, at...

    I totally understand and would probably do the same if I were in your position. Just be sure to factor the risks into your decision making process. I know a bit about stimulation and can try to...

    Researchers are doing what they can. Ultimately, it's not their responsibility to bring this technology to market. It's the responsibility of the company that will be selling the stimulators.

    We're based in Gainesville, FL. Been here for 13 years now and it continues to grow on me. I know a few people in wheelchairs here, but not many, so I can't really say if it's ideal or not. There is...

    Provided your abdominal muscles are still innervated (doesn't require that you have feeling), the muscles will contract when electrically stimulated. Repeated contractions can strengthen and grow...

    If it's not the cabling, then it's something internal to the stimulator. That could mean any number of dozens of components may have failed. You'd need a handy electrical engineer to diagnose and...
