Thread: NeuroRecovery Technologies, Inc. CEO presents at Working 2 Walk

    In watching the presentation, I almost became afraid that they'd need to blunt the less invasive, more affordable external device so that it wouldn't compete w the potentially more profitable internal one? Something about external one being used for PT and screening? Why wouldn't we just want the less invasive one? Hoping I misunderstood.

    What you are suggesting is like a car manufacturer offering two cars, one with the engine management tuned to provide more power and costing more.
    Thats definitely not what they are planning.

    Its more down to the amount of connections that people have available. For people with more connections the external may be good enough, for less connections you will need more power (not right word) so having it internal will sort this out.

    From a business point of view its easier to build, test, certify and sell an external device. So if it would do the same they would just sell that.

    Another question. Loved seeing that they're looking at spasticity in the upcoming clinical trial. Does anyone know whether the pilot showed any help for spasticity?

    training

    Grammy--

    watching the panel discussion Dr. Terrafranca participated in (now I can't find the link) when discussing the 2 to 3 year timeline the doctor referred to some type of training we can do to better prepare ourselves to take advantage of this.

    Do you know there is any specific training he is referring to? are there any general guidelines to follow?

    My guess is that he's referring to any general exercise you can get, maybe the use of an FES bike, standing frame etc

    I've never read that there's any specific protocol developed to follow as of yet. Mostly people are doing activity based training and general exercise rather than sitting idle. The trials began with participants that had worked out and met their peak (plateau). They were then able to see where the epidural stimulation took them from there on added benefits of having the therapy.

    That's very exciting news! Makes 2017 look promising.

    Any updates on this?

    Curious if anyone has any updates as to the status of when the external stimulator may be available ?


    At the 2016 W2W there was announcements in regards to money being raised and the timeframe of when it would be available that was thrown around was two years.


    More recently there was a announcement or article in which there is talk of having raised $5 million from the Reeve foundation.


    Does anyone have any more updates as to when this might be available?


    Are we looking at the end of 2018 (two years from the 2016 W2W presentation) or are we still talking about 2 years from today which would you make it 2020?

    Is this the article you are referring to https://www.boldbusiness.com/health/...l-cord-injury/

    Referencing this:
    "Initial funding was for $2.460 million yet Wilderotter said Reeve funding has increased to over $ 4million with a goal of $8 million by mid 2018."

    I would recommend everyone send an email to Peter Wilderotter asking if they actually funded NRT with this $4M or is the article incorrect.
