    You might educate yourselves guys. Many have sensation and cath. It is not a big deal once you get over the eeewww factor.

    China Trials Suggest Walking Can Unlock SCI Damage (Dr. Wise Young article)

    I can't believe that the training alone will get people walking, surely it can't be that easy?

    However I want to try, worst case I spend a lot of money and get a bit fitter.

    If I wanted to hire a physio and try and replicate the walking training then I suppose there is nothing to stop me.

    Is the walking training documented anywhere or in a video etc so that I can look for a physio to work with me?
    I can't imagine there are any near me in the UK who are trained, but it can't be that hard for them to learn.

    The cost to get a replication of the walking program in North America for a private patient would be ridiculous especially if you don't have good arm and/or core functio. If you want to do it you got to go to China!

    You might want to contact Prime Physio in Cambridge http://primephysio.co.uk they have a good reputation for SCI physio. It won't be cheap, I had a physio coming to my home to train my carers in ROM exercise, cost was ?50 per hour.

    Thanks, at those rates its about 47k sterling. I wonder how long someone needs to do the training to see if anything is happening.

    You'd need to factor in access to specialist machines as well. Or a well equipped gym.

    I thought they just used ropes and a walker in the china trial?
    I did get feedback from someone who knew that it was a bit primeval though.

    If their way of getting you to walk is the right thing, then machines will be needed to get the cost down. Just I suppose those haven't been invented yet - and when they are they will be at the usual disgraceful disabled premium price :-(
