January 2020 - Developing neurotechnologies for spinal cord injuries

In October 2018, a breakthrough in treating paralysis was reported when researchers utilised targeted neurotechnologies to restore walking in individuals with spinal cord injury. The study, termed STImulation Movement Overground (STIMO), involved three paralyzed individuals who sustained cervical spinal cord injuries many years ago who were able to walk again with the aid of crutches or a walker.

Neuro Central spoke to Grégoire Courtine at the Spinal Research 21st Network Meeting (6–7 September 2019, London, UK) to hear more about this discovery.
