What is Neurostimulation?
Neurostimulation is the process of using gentle electrical currents to stimulate the spinal cord below the point of injury, enabling nerve circuits in the spinal cord to ‘hear’ and act upon messages coming from the brain.
Neurostimulation is a quantum leap forward in spinal cord injury research and has proven to be able to return unprecedented levels of feeling and function to people suffering from paralysis as a result of a chronic injury.
Excitingly, movement is just part of the picture. Neurostimulation is also proving to have a very positive effect on bladder and bowel control, cardiovascular function, autonomic control (blood pressure, temperature etc.) and sexual function.
