  • Dr. Reggie Edgerton: Science in Motion and How the Brain and Spinal Cord Control

    This post is for those that love to hear about epidural stimulation and work taking place in the Edgerton Lab.

    After the Working 2 Walk Symposium in Seattle, I told everyone I had arranged for an interview with Dr. Reggie Edgerton on People Behind the Science with Dr. Marie McNeely. She hasn't disappointed us! The interview with Dr. Edgerton of the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology at the University of California, Los Angeles was completed, posted today by Dr. McNeely and put up on SCI Research Blog.

      Thank you for the link. Reggie is definitely a cool cat. I liked his book recommendations and also enjoy live jazz. I was hoping for a few more questions about the work that is currently doing since it's topical.

      Does anyone have any answers to these questions?

      - Have the trials posted on the clinical trials.gov initiated?
      - Is Dr. Edgerton working with Dr. Harkema?
      - Is he associated with THE BIG IDEA?
      - Are other scientists using his breakthrough technology in different ways?
      - Is the company Neuroenabling Technologies funding the trials or has a new company emerged?

        You can find more about Dr. Edgerton by typing in "Edgerton" and "NeuroRecovery Technology" at the SCI Research Blog HERE.

        The trials have not initiated yet. I believe they are working on funding issues at this time.
        Working with Dr. Harkema? In what way? (They are separate laboratories).
        BIG IDEA is the name of the CDRF funding for 36 additional human test subjects going to the Harkema lab, not Edgerton lab.
        NeuroRecovery Technology is the name of the company working on development of both types of stimulators at the Edgerton lab.

          It gets a little confusing with Harkema being part of the NeuroRecovery Network and Edgerton working on NeuroRecovery Technology.

            Indeed it does...the NeuroRecovery Network being a group of locations for SCI clinical trials and the NeuroRecovery Technology Company building stimulation devices. I did a double take when I saw that for the first time also.

              These are indeed separate initiatives. Reggie is talking with several facilities about his trial.

                Did I read this incorrectly, or has Dr. Edgerton recruited a few quadriplegic patients on the down low few years back similar to the four paraplegics in the epidural stimulator trial. And has stated results were pretty impressive, with his over the skin simulator for arm and hand function? But hasn't actually released anything official yet.

                    You may possibly be talking about one of the Arm's of the clinical trial that needed only 6 participants (which I believe is done?) and I'm not sure about your term down low if your talking internal or external? The next Arm of the trial for the 12 men on bladder recovery shows it has not started recruiting just yet at University of CA with Dr. Daniel Lu.
                    The ARMS were 6 and 6 and 12 for a total of 24... You do mean bladder, right?

                      I think by "on the down low" he meant outside of an official trial as in sneaky. Reggie would not operate outside the guidelines.

                        I agree...There wouldn't be anything sneaky with Reggie. I thought he was meaning "down low on the back area" of the body rather than cervical...eeks. The trial link I put up there says not recruiting yet and it's for male bladder function neuromodulation.

                          Buy down low I meant quietly or secretively. No I was talking about the upper body stimulator for quadriplegics, doesn't involve going under the skin.

                            Hey James, look into who has the patents on the tech you are interested in. Follow the money.

                              At the clinical trials.gov site it shows that the transcutaneous trials are not yet recruiting. Dr. Lu (the trial contact) could be contacted to see if they are getting closer to a start date now or when enrollments may possibly begin. I don't think there is anything secretive, dishonest, low down or down low going on.
