      Don't want to mix politics with cure info here ... but I heard something scarey this week on one of the late night talk shows... that the dems are going to have to find another actor - a bigger name than Trump - to take him down. How sad is that!?!?!?

        1. Dr. Justin Brown has implanted the Medtronic pain device here in the USA for SCI. (I don't know anything about his customers origin or regulations).
        Also or in addition to that...
        2. Others have implanted the Medtronic pain device outside the USA for SCI. (Usually that is sold to customers as part of an unproven stem cell package for large sums of money).
        Thanks Grammy, understand now.

          The patients were basically reporting previously to the researchers that they'd noticed bladder behavior improvements which is different than cure. (The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, pupillary response, urination and sexual arousal). So to reduce confusion, autonomic functions were not even mentioned in this paper.

          This is the summary of the current published reporting from the locomotor lab by Kate Willette. LINK

            No politics.
            It was not me, it was my autonomic nervous system being nervous.

                      Well Grammy, I guess there is always this that you posted today where they will be studying the effects of es on urinary function Specifically, rather great that you posted this today

                        in reading this, the wording is a tad "off"; it states that: "scES may help contribute to an improvement in quality of life by providing a means of extending the time to catheterization under safe pressures and restoring efficient bladder emptying, ultimately preserving lower and upper urinary tract health."

                        Is that close but not the same as voluntarily voiding, correct

                            I would call the description as improving bladder behavior. (When one could tell that you need to cath due to a full bladder).

                            Yes, that was an abstract by Charles H Hubscher PhD. Dept. of Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology

                            Dr. Hubscher's research involves a multidisciplinary approach directed toward (i) understanding the neural mechanisms involved in the control/coordination of male and female urogenital functions, with a current emphasis on bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction following chronic spinal cord injury and (ii) understanding the central neural mechanisms underlying the development and perpetuation of chronic pain, with an emphasis on spinal cord injury-related pains and pelvic/visceral pain. Translational studies involve experiments being done in parallel using a clinically relevant spinal contusion rodent model and studies of urogenital and bowel function in human research participants with complete or incomplete spinal cord injuries. Combinations of electrophysiological, behavioral, immunohistochemical and neuroanatomical techniques are being used in Dr. Hubscher's animal laboratory.

                            Effects of activity dependent plasticity on recovery of bladder and sexual function after spinal cord injury: Locomotor training, facilitated by a treadmill, trained therapists, and a harness system in order to provide graded body weight support has shown a range of benefits in both human and animal models after spinal cord injury (SCI). Parallel human and animal studies are underway to assess the impact of step training on non-locomotor functions, specifically bladder, bowel and sexual function. The goal of our current animal studies is to quantify step training induced changes in urodynamic function following SCI and determine if benefits are due to lumbosacral circuitry activation or exercise/metabolic stimulation. EMG recordings are being used to examine interactions between the urinary bladder circuitry and the hind limb. Also, since both exercise and activity dependent tasks are highly influential on a family of molecules called neurotrophic factors, we are examining whether functional urodynamic improvements with training are related to changes in neurotrophin levels in the bladder. Likewise, our experimental studies using human subjects with a SCI focuses on the mechanisms involved in the reorganization of spinal cord circuits for bladder and sexual function with activity-dependent plasticity induced by locomotor training and/or epidural stimulation.

                                You can tell by the video his left hand has some deficits with the C-6/7 injury.
