So you can stop slandering my name cause you dug your own hole. How do you justify saying he is responding incredibly with no noticeable motor or sensory function let alone autonomic function? Especially in context to the transcutaneous stimulator, how do you expect people to think when you say he's responding incredibly. Seems you're the one we shouldn't pay attention to...

    BTW my responses are going to actual data and information from the company so there's that lmfao.
    You're right, everyone else is wrong! I just don't know which one of your versions will be right.

    If it is correct then please elaborate.
    Mize,
    please reread my post. I said the RTI showed LITTLE noticeable reaction. One of 5 trainers felt something in one person, no one else felt it.

    Ok, but you also said you were working at home with a stimulator from Krieger and separately said that your son had good results with stim. I'm merely asking you to clarify those systems.

    If you son had great results with stim then what model and mode. Was it one borrowed from Krieger?

    So apparent voluntary movement of his legs and ankles that COULD be related to his breathing in the way of spasticity (as a similar injury I can attest to this phenomenon). Then with little noticeable reaction as you said.

Be very careful of paying any attention to JamesMcM or his replies, he claims that people said things they never said (or implied) in some twisted attempt to prove he actually has an inside relationship with medical device movers and shakers.
    Then you said it's NOT showing noticeable movement or sensation


    Slightly contradicting but at the end of the day I think we are all just trying to figure out where the "responding incredibly" diagnosis is coming from ( no twisting of words these are direct quotes from you). It's not about me being right or wrong, I have nothing to do with it, this is about what you said! However I was "right" in saying that NRT wants to develop the implantable stimulator, because they believe very chronic and severe injuries won't respond very well to " on the skin stimulation" which seems to be correct ( even in your son's case because in any of these varying outcomes you've described none would even come close to NRTs study), then again I was just relaying information I got from more so it's not like I could've been right or wrong, that would be on them the people who have been studying this on 15 patients and Lord knows how many animal models..

    Some clarifications about NRT and spinal stimulation in general.

    It's not surprising that using an rt300 doesn't produce results. The NRT tech requires two simultaneous stimulation frequencies as well as drive currents beyond what the rt300 can do. Depending upon the therapy the NRT tech is also monopolar whereas the rt300 is bipolar. NRT also detects spinal activity signals and adapts.

    The biggest impediment to NRT releasing end-user devices today is quite simple. The SCI foundations won't fund for-profit entities and the venture capitalists see the SCI market as too small for significant investment. Basically NRT needs relatively little money to complete an FDA trials prototype but it is stuck in this funding no man's land.

    If you are interested in investing please chime in. In the coming weeks I'm going to lead a charge to get signatures telling the better known SCI foundations to follow there intent of their charters and get this tech funded and into the hands of patients ASAP. This could be available in as little as 18 months from funding and has a target device price of $2,500 USD.

    I asked NRT about investing and they never got back to me. It would be interesting to know what kind of money we are looking at here.

    I think it's hard for them to respond to add such inquiries because they don't have many employees right now.
    NRT is currently trying to raise about $8 million. They'd like to raise that from a smaller number of investors but are open to smaller investors. SEC regulations require investors in such startups to be "qualified" or "accredited," however, which puts additional limits on smaller investors because it requires either a higher income or a significant net worth. If you know of such individuals please let me know.
