    That's a terrific group with many speakers lined up attacking paralysis from all sides!

    Wonder if Silver has made any progress and if he'll attend? Still my golden boy .. or Silver I guess. Lol

    Grammy do you think these stimulations can be effective in chronic lumbosacral patients too to regain BBS function?

    We'll know more possibilities after the human studies specifically target the anecdotal reports that we've heard about.

    NIBIB described the need for a controlled, multi-site pilot clinical study of spinal stimulation in spinal cord injury subjects. The study design would be guided by the ultimate goal of gathering sufficient safety, efficacy and other data to inform the conduct of a future definitive trial for FDA approval or clearance of a market-approved spinal stimulation device. NIBIB outlined possible considerations for designing a pilot study, including the need to establish the most efficient route to identify an effective, transferrable treatment approach, with bladder, bowel and sexual function as primary outcomes. These include coordinated functional mapping studies to optimize the parameters for spinal stimulation to effect control of bladder, bowel, and sexual function in individuals with spinal cord injury. Additionally, it is important to specify the minimum number of subjects and trial sites to generate sufficient pilot data for a future large scale trial, and optimize a treatment approach for maximum scalability.

    I don't mean to sound flippant with this question: I truly don't understand...transcutaneous stimulation seems to do the same and even more than implanted Epidural stimulation so why use funds and effort pursuing the effects of implanted ES when more of that effort and funds should be put behind the transcutaneous avenue? I mean is there ANYTHING that can be achieved with the implanted form of Epidural stimulation that cannot be achieved with transcutaneous stimulation? So what is the point of using funds and resources to investigate implanted Epidural stimulation when there is already something better?

    Implanted electrodes are capable of delivering the higher field strengths needed to see similar results in A/Completes whereas transcutaneous is predominantly successful in eliciting voluntary movement in Incompletes. So, obviously, one would first probably try mapping/stim with transcutaneous in case it is sufficient, but, if that doesn't work, implanted electrodes would likely work better.

    My guess is that the real long-term value of both of implanted and transcutaneous stim is in retraining repaired tissues after some variety of stem cell implantation. Reconnecting axons that haven't been used for years and will likely have different "wiring" than they did previously will require retraining and stim seems a way to accomplish that efficiently.
