Segmental Mechanisms of Transcutaneous Spinal Cord Stimulation for Spasticity Control

2019-03-28 08:27:23 | BioPortfolio


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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
