Epidural Stimulation brings hope for paraplegia cases

An enthusiastic team of scientists at the University of Louisville has come up with a breakthrough in the treatment of paraplegia. This study was performed on a patient who suffered with lower body paralysis. After undergoing an extensive locomotor training, tremendous results were achieved in the same subject in the form of ability to stand up independently. Epidural electrical stimulation enhances the quality of signal transmission from the brain to spinal cord and accentuates the movements of joints and muscles.
