Walking is a locomotor task that integrates information from all over the nervous system. The lumbosacral spinal cord houses neural networks that contribute to locomotion. These networks dominate locomotor activity during development and may provide suitable targets for restoring function after...
The overall goal of this dissertation was to develop a novel rehabilitative intervention to improve walking after incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI). It is widely known that arm movement modulates leg activity and improves the efficiency of gait. However, gait-specific rehabilitation...
A pilot study investigating arm and leg FES-assisted cycling as an intervention for improving ambulation after Incomplete Spinal Cord InjuryDownload
People with incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI) have the potential for recovering walking through plasticity-induced changes in the remaining neural circuitry. Current rehabilitation for walking attempts to induce such changes by providing relevant sensory inputs and motor commands through...
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a rehabilitative technology that can be used to improve walking in individuals with mobility impairments due to neurologic injury or disease. Feedback is essential for efficient FES-assisted walking. The overall goal of my project was to investigate...
