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.
