Epidural Stimulation – A New Treatment Option for Spinal Cord Injury Sufferers

Spinal cord injury (SCI) was previously thought of as permanent, but recovery in the form of voluntary movement has changed that perception forever. It is also possible to improve SCI-affected functions related to cardiovascular and other autonomic nervous system.

 

This is not muscular stimulation or pain management. The implanted epidural stimulation device locally activates nerve circuits in the spinal cord by ‘imitating‘ brain nerve signals. Within very short periods of time patients have shown remarkable responses. The device is proven safe.
