    Non-Invasive Skin-Surface Stimulation Study to Activate the Spinal Cord (RISES-T)?

    Does anyone know anything about this? What is the goal?

    CENTER FOR NEURORESTORATION

    at Thomas Jefferson University
    invites you to consider participation in a:
    Non-Invasive Skin-Surface Stimulation Study to
    Activate the Spinal Cord (RISES-T)
    We are looking for:

    Adults aged 18 and older
    People who had a spinal cord injury more than 1 year ago
    Can attend up to 36 in-person visits over 4 months (three times per week), most lasting
    approximately two hours of occupational or physical therapy including electrical
    stimulation on the back, and three longer visits for comprehensive assessments
    Can get to at least one of the following locations: Jefferson Center City & Magee Riverfront
    Funding provided by the Reynolds Innovative Spinal Electrical Stimulation Program

    It seems like another transcutaneous electrical spinal cord stimulation study, like the work Onward is doing with their ARCEX.

        I'm at the halfway point and I haven't noticed any changes, but I'm patient number 1 in this study. I've had Blood pressure issues so they have had to lower he stim. So it might work better with a higher stim.

            Not sure if it’s interesting but the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab in Chicago seems to be working towards this as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMaNxf-edvg
