        Spaulding Rehab here in Boston is participating in the Onward Up-Lift study. I have an appointment Monday to get a GRASSP test and in ASIA exam to see if I'm eligible. Looks like they want a certain non-zero level of hand function, which I'm hoping means tenodesis since my fingers and thumbs haven't moved a bit since my injury, haha. But I'm really skilled at picking stuff up off the floor, nonetheless! They also want to confirm ASIA B which means I'm facing the unpleasant task of a finger up my bum (I was diagnosed ASIA A nearly 3 years ago when admitted to inpatient, but not tested since then and everyone is pretty well convinced that isn't correct). I'm really excited about this, and hope they'll take me! Obviously there is the elusive promise that something might go well for me, but more importantly I just want to help push the science forward.
        C5/6 complete (maybe) circa June 2018

          Good luck with everything! Hope you get in and see some results.

          Is there a list somewhere of locations doing the research as well as requirements? I can't seem to find anything on their website other than the ability to register...

            Disregard - I found the link to the actual study.

                    Yeah, me too! I don't think there's much to impact BBS, but it would be a happy surprise for sure.

                      FYI update from Onward... I'm really looking forward to seeing their non-invasive device available...

                      'The American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) recently held their Annual Scientific Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. ASIA is a leading organization in the field of spinal cord injury (SCI) care, education, and research.
                      A team from ONWARD attended the ASIA meeting (our first in-person conference in many months), where we were pleased to sit alongside researchers, clinicians, and other stakeholders in the SCI community as speakers and panelists shared the latest advancements.

                      Our unique role within the community is one of translation – bringing important research innovations out of the lab and into the clinic. In fact, we have built a company with that specific purpose, to commercialize therapies for SCI so they can be scaled and made widely available.

                      We were very active at the meeting. Here is just some of what occurred:
                      • ONWARD’s US clinical team led an Up-LIFT Investigator Meeting, convening researchers from many of the top SCI clinics across the US to discuss progress on this ongoing pivotal trial to gain regulatory clearance for our ARC-EX transcutaneous therapy.
                      • ONWARD co-founders, Gregoire Courtine, PhD and Jocelyne Bloch, MD, delivered the keynote address in a session entitled, Spinal Cord Gateways to Restore Neurological Function.
                      • Craig Hospital Executive Director of Research and Evaluation, Candy Tefertiller, PT, DPT, Ph.D., NC, presented an abstract on use of our investigational transcutaneous therapy entitled, Comparison of One Year Post-Injury Outcomes Between Intensive Locomotor Training and Conventional Therapy After Motor Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury.
                      • I had the privilege of hosting a lunch symposium and panel entitled, Developing Breakthrough Therapies for People with SCI where Jon Schlueter, a person with SCI who was treated with our investigational transcutaneous therapy in a pilot study, detailed how his ability to play the guitar was restored. The impressive panel included several leading researchers and clinicians:
                      o Edelle Field-Fote, PT, PhD, FAPTA, FASIA, Shepherd Center
                      o Andrei Krassioukov, MD, PhD, FRCPC, ICORD
                      o Chet Moritz, PhD, University of Washington
                      o Leslie Morse, DO, University of Minnesota
                      o Candy Tefertiller, PT, DPT, PhD, NCS, Craig Hospital
                      o Grégoire Courtine, PhD, EPFL
                      • We also hosted scores of meetings with leading researchers and clinicians in our Technology Suite and during meals, learning more about how we can help bring important advances to people with SCI.'

                          Hi guys. I have some interesting news. I’m actually in Switzerland at the moment participating in a trial from NeuroRestore collaborating with Onward. I have the privilege to work closely with Gregoire and Jocelyne and the rest of the the most skilled team members. I got two devices implanted in the thoracic and lumbar area. The main focus is to improve the blood pressure, spasticity, trunk control, breathing and coughing, AD, and other autonomic functions. There is the possibility to get some other functions improvements like bbs, legs movements or even standing. But that’s at the next stage of the trial. For the moment everything is going as well as expected and we learn more each day as I’m the first patient ever to try this kind of therapy. I can say I’m so lucky to be here and get this done already seeing that it works as was expected. Now after 2 months of very exciting works I will leave this amazing country and return to Ireland where I’ll have daily zoom session while I can also use the devices freely trying different set programs and intensities. We will keep seeing improvements more and more and then I will be coming back each month for evaluations until the end of the 6 months first stage. At the end I will come for one month and work on motor functions of sitting upright, standing and even stepping. It is entirely possible and I believe I will be at least able to stand on my own. For those that are wondering, I am C5 ASIA A, true complete.
                          So my friends keep the hopes up like I had, keep your body as fit and healthy as possible like I had. Anyone who needs any tips let me know or ad me on Instagram.
                          The therapy in trialing now will most likely be available in a couple of years because it’s safety and efficacy. Be well everybody

                              hi Sylvio I too had surgery to have a spinal cord stimulator implanted by Professor Courtine they implanted a battery on me in the abdomen as well as chips at the t12 level of my spinal cord is it the same as did you have too? I live in France I hope for the best establishment for you
