Do you know any specific about this treatment?
What kind of "ElectroCHEMICAL stimulation" has been used and what means
that is "applied over lumbar segments" to enable cortical drive to regain control of voluntary movements.
By my understanding their intention was to activate neuroplasticity in remaining connected tissue in spinal cord
using ElectroCHEMICAL stimulation in lumber section (?) and with gait walking training but it's hard
to figure out exactly how, just according to abstract.
Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary
to what we know about nature
I don't think anyone knows for sure what they'll decide to add in the future. They have several options to try as do other groups.
I believe they're working a bit with Buspar since it's already FDA approved. They have worked with a cocktail of medications discussed in previous video's.

I've visited Minneapolis over the weekend and spoke with Dr Darrow. They are approved for 100 patients and want to include wide variety of patients. Initial visit consists of emg, ASIA test and tilt table test (bp).
I was surprised to learn that implantation of the stimulation is 50 min in outpatient clinic. Once that is set you go home, they give you socks with accelerato-meters to collect data into the app they built.
He said a lot of people are calling with stimulators already implanted (!) but with no settings how to use them. Madness...
They will be tracking bb&s but that's only notes from patients, not actually measured or tested.
Same shit since i haven't been on here in 4 yrs.... Know omes healed or "cured" yet. Huh.......mmmmmm. False hope. They make more $ on us being in chairs then not. TRUE
How to transplant a headSergio Canavero first proposed attempting a human head transplant in 2013. He wants to use the surgery to extend the lives of people whose muscles and nerves have degenerated or whose organs are riddled with cancer. But there are many hurdles, such as fusing the spinal cord (see main story) and preventing the body’s immune system from rejecting the head.
The procedure will involve cooling both the head and the body it is to be moved to, to extend the time their cells can survive without oxygen. The tissue around the neck would then be dissected and the major blood vessels linked using tiny tubes, before the spinal cords of each person are cut.
The head would then be moved onto the donor body, and the ends of their spinal cords fused together using PEG. Next, the muscles and blood supply would be sutured. The recipient would be kept in a coma for three or four weeks to prevent movement. Implanted electrodes would be used to provide regular electrical stimulation to the spinal cord, because research suggests this can strengthen new nerve connections.
Canavero still thinks it could be possible to perform the first human head transplant by the end of 2017, depending upon finding a suitable donor. Several people have said they would like to volunteer to have their heads attached to a different body, while a hospital in Vietnam is reportedly keen to host the first surgery.
