    ''I wish the research community would focus on using stimulation to solve the problems from the top down. Breathing, hand function, bbs, then look at legs''.

    Totally agree!

    That's an impressive approach to implementing the treadmill training into the regiment. Here's hoping this surgery/therapy gets funded and implemented into other trials. I could see this tech working well aside other tech like stem cells and such.

    They have a company to bring this to market https://www.gtxmedical.com

    Will they get all the funding needed, thats a different story. Afaik they don't have all the money they need yet.

    I have a similar device implanted as part of the E-stand clinical trial https://www.estand.org/. The device I have implanted was intended for pain management but has been programmed for the stimulation purpose the exact model is St.Jude Proclaim. My injury level is T8 the device was implanted with the stimulation paddle at T-12. I am ASIA-A complete motor and sensation injured in 2001, at 18 years out I am the furthest from injury to have this device implanted. It has been three months since I have started the study and we are still adjusting settings I have regained some voluntary foot and leg movement, something I thought would never happen. I can now move my legs on command and left foot flexion although my legs are fairly atrophied after 18 years I can already see them getting stronger. Even though it may not be a cure, I feel these devices could play a crucial role in rehab as it only took 3 hours of surgery to implant and I was back home a few hours later. If I could have had this done 18 years ago it would have made a significant difference in my life.
