    Thumbs up Neuromodulatory Strategies for Recovery of Sensory-Motor Function after Severe SCI

    One of the most anticipated speakers at the Working 2 Walk 2014 Symposium in Seattle Washington was Dr. V. Reggie Edgerton. With 40 years of experience in the field and the known successes with epidural stimulation coming to fruition the past few years, Unite 2 Fight Paralysis didn't disappoint any attendees with arranging this engaging presentation!

    HERE'S THE LATEST LINK AND INFORMATION ON EPIDURAL STIMULATION:

    really worth watching! excellent information. certainly shows how important locomotor training will be with other future "treatments". i like the analogy of this technology bing a "hearing aid" for the spinal cord. it also appears that this electrical stimulation of the spinal cord may aid with other repair strategies, and it's mentioned briefly there appears evidence that combinations they tried worked better. interesting too that specific frequency and power levels are important to getting this to work.

    wish he could have spoke even longer! thanks for the post.

    Here's a blog post I did almost 2 years ago that contains a lot of the scientific material and explanations that Dr. Edgerton is going over at W2W in Seattle, WA. It contains a nice video presentation from when he spoke at Western University in Canada. He's onstage for about an hour with Q & A included. Enjoy!
