To determine whether functional electrical stimulation (FES) promotes neurological and physical recovery in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). The researchers will investigate the ex...
The purpose of this proposal is to evaluate and compare the health benefits of using upper extremity exercise versus functional electrical stimulation for lower extremity exercise. It is o...
Currently, those with spinal cord injury (SCI) demonstrate increased prevalence of obesity (75%) cardiovascular disease (30 - 50%), type II diabetes (21%) and osteoporosis in the legs (100...
The overall objective of this research project is to examine the clinical efficacy of lower extremity cycling with functional electrical stimulation to improve the health and fitness of ch...
Functional electrical stimulation is a process that uses low intensity electrical pulses generated by an electric stimulator to create muscle contractions. By contracting muscles in a spec...
Electrical stimulation of the spinal cord is commonly used to treat neuropathic pain. However, epidural space adhesion caused by previous surgery may interfere with precise electrical lead placement. ...
Investigation of muscle fatigue during functional electrical stimulation (FES)-evoked exercise in individuals with spinal cord injury using dynamometry has limited capability to characterize the fatig...
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) may help to reduce the risk of developing macro- and microvascular complications in people with SCI. Low-intensity FES has significant clinical potential since ...
Compression of Thoracic Spinal Cord with Decreased Cerebrospinal Fluid Space Following Implantation of Paddle Lead Spinal Cord Stimulation at T9: A 3-dimensional Myelographic Computed Tomography Study.
To investigate the extent of spinal cord compression and CSF space following T9 paddle lead spinal cord stimulation (SCS) using three-dimensional myelographic CT scans.
To determine the relationship between the different functional aspects (as determined by the Spinal Cord Independence Measure) and quality of life (QOL) following a traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI)...
Application of electric current to the spine for treatment of a variety of conditions involving innervation from the spinal cord.
Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.
Repair of the damaged neuron function after SPINAL CORD INJURY or SPINAL CORD DISEASES.
