Electrical stimulation

Displaying 2 studies

  • Service Line TransPerc Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to compare transcutaneous electrical spinal stimulation and epidural electrical spinal stimulation.  Relationships between stimulation input and electrophysiological output will be recorded, and changes in motor, sensory, and functional outcomes during and after stimulation will be assessed.

  • A Study to Evaluate Mobility and Therapeutic Benefits Resulting from Exoskeleton Use in a Clinical Setting Rochester, MN

    The proposed study is intended to inform the hypotheses that (1) regular dosing of exoskeleton walking will provide health benefits to non-ambulatory and poorly-ambulatory individuals with SCI, including decreased pain and spasticity, improvements in bowel and bladder function, decreased body-mass index (BMI), enhanced well-being; (2) regular dosing of exoskeleton walking will facilitate neurological or functional recovery in some individuals with SCI, particularly those with incomplete injuries; and (3) the level of mobility enabled by a lower limb exoskeleton is commensurate with the walking speeds, distances, and surfaces required for community ambulation.
