Closed-loop gait empowerment to restore free walking capacity for people with spinal cord injury
Today, over 480,000 Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) people in the EU and US are bound to a wheelchair, with around 24,000 new incidents annually. Our aim is to restore free walking capacity for those people, by providing closed-loop Space-Time specific Epidural Electrical Stimulation (ST-EES). In the project, we develop and validate gait detection tailored to SCI patients with largely impaired motor control, to optimise their gait and balance via epidural electrical stimulation.
