    Epidural stimulation, Canada.

    I've heard that a recent non-published trial with epidural stimulation has been performed in Canada. Four complete paraplegics, >3y post, where all has gotten functional return. One even started walk-training and apparantly function remains when stimulator is off. Somebody know more or know what uni. it can be? As said I have no source to post.
    Debating on CareCure is like participating in the special-olympics. You may win, but you're still disabled.

    Sounds like you may be talking about this http:///forum/showthread.php?230501-...al-stimulation
    Its happening in the US though, not Canada.

      No it's not that one. It shouldn't have been published yet.

        It just sounds very similar then. 4 patients, 3 years post...
        Hope you find the info and post it then if its not the same, because thatll be very interesting IMO.

            Hi Void, do you know if that trial is related to transcutaneous stimulation or with surgically implanted electrodes ??..
            I'm interested in those trials:
            http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01949285
            http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01906424
            and tried to contact several times both Drs. Daniel Lu and Edgerton without success..
            I'm trying to know what device they're using or details of electricity used in those trials, this to tune my own device at the right frequency and start stimulate my own lumbosacral roots..
            I will be pleased if anyone can help..
            Thanks

              George, sorry no idea.

              Since the first info came about that epi-stim trial many epi-stim trials are running. E.g. this researcher is going: http://www.spinal-research.org/2012/...ndroitinase-3/
              Someone know where they are performed and if any is in Canada?

                Dr. Ronaldo Ichiyama's research project is with rats. It isn't an epi-stem trial yet. He was funded by the Spinal Research Foundation for 3 years at 90,101
