The aim of the pilot study is to gain first insights into the interaction of transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation with the altered activity of intraspinal circuits associated with spinal spasticity. The main goal is to evaluate the validity of the chosen measures and to generate a data base for statistical planning of a subsequent clinical study.

To determine the biophysical impact of biophysical Impact of Transcutaneous Spinal Cord Stimulation (TSCS) within a single session. We hypothesize that subjects will demonstrate increased ...
Transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation (tcSCS) is a form of electrical stimulation delivered over the skin of the spine that may be valuable for reducing spasticity without the side effect...
The purpose of this trial is to determine the efficacy of spinal cord stimulation to produce an effective cough in patients with spinal cord injuries.
This is a randomized control trial that will evaluate the effectiveness of transcutaneous (non-invasive) spinal cord stimulation on gait and balance function for individuals after spinal c...
The purpose of this study is to determinate whether the application of transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation produce changes in the excitability of alpha moto neurone in healthy volunteer...
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS), a common invasive neuromodulation technique, induced pain relief via electrical stimulation of the dorsal column of the spinal cord.
Spinal cord stimulation has been shown to improve pain relief and reduce narcotic analgesic use in cases of complex refractory pain syndromes. However, a subset of patients ultimately undergoes remova...
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) activates the dorsal column fibers using electrical stimuli. Current SCS systems function in fixed-output mode, delivering the same stimulus regardless of spinal cord (SC...
We aim to non-invasively facilitate activation of spared neural circuits after cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We developed and tested a novel configuration ...
: To determine current barriers for clinical implementation of epidural stimulation for functional improvement after spinal cord injury and highlight applicable ethical constructs to approach future r...
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.
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.
Penetrating and non-penetrating injuries to the spinal cord resulting from traumatic external forces (e.g., WOUNDS, GUNSHOT; WHIPLASH INJURIES; etc.).
Repair of the damaged neuron function after SPINAL CORD INJURY or SPINAL CORD DISEASES.
Application of electric current to the spine for treatment of a variety of conditions involving innervation from the spinal cord.
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
