    Researchers at the UW help individuals with spinal cord injuries regain some upper limb function https://www.dailyuw.com/news/scinews/article_4e79e500-6438-11eb-9aac-4b1d6bf3218e.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twi tter&utm_campaign=user-share

      Imagine if people actually had access to this physical therapy? We could actually see improvement... As opposed to 10 people in a study that we will never hear about again. So frustrating.

      It definitely works! Train facilities and physical therapists on it and let's get people working at it.

            Regarding the first post about the research done at the University of Washington, I found a podcast from their spinal cord injury group (Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System). There is an interview with the researcher and an interview with one of the study participants.

            If you go to this page: http://sci.washington.edu/podcast/index.asp they are podcasts #3 and #7. That is their website but you could probably get it anywhere you listen to podcasts. It is called the "SCI Forum".

              A New Way to Restore Hand Mobility—With an Electrified Patch

              In a clinical trial, wearing a small stimulator on their necks helped people with quadriplegia build back movement they had lost years ago.

                Stimulating research could be moving for people with spinal cord injuries
                Using physical therapy combined with a noninvasive method of stimulating nerve cells in the spinal cord, University of Washington researchers helped six Seattle area participants regain some hand and arm mobility. That increased mobility lasted at least three to six months after treatment had ended.

                    Why something so easy to manufacture and safe to use is not right now in the market? Sometimes I cant understand this ***** world

                      I wonder if there are any potential risks that could come from doing this?

                        Another cool similar non-invasive approach https://www.9news.com.au/national/sp...ngn4ddb1_VIvWM

                          Has anyone put electrodes on the cervical area themselves... as part of their own home physio routine.... with like an Empi or equivalent... (there's a lot of detail here on settings/parameters etc https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9311628)

                            Aside from the surgery, this should have the same risks as epidural stimulation.

                            You need a specific kind of electrical wave that reach deeper than our regular EMS/TENS units.
