Paralyzed Men: Non-invasive Spinal Cord Stimulation

Five men with complete motor paralysis were able to voluntarily generate step-like movements with a new strategy that non-invasively delivers electrical stimulation to their spinal cords. Strategy, called transcutaneous stimulation, delivers electrical current to the spinal cord by way of electrodes strategically placed on the skin of the lower back. The stimulation came from a device called an epidural stimulator that was surgically implanted on the surface of the men's spinal cords.
