Over the past two years, we have had the pleasure of collaborating with Dr. Andrei Krassioukov’s laboratory to investigate the effects of epidural stimulation on autonomic function. Our first case report (2018) demonstrated that epidural spinal cord stimulation may be help manage cardiovascular dysfunction in individuals with chronic SCI. Click here to learn more.
In our second study (2019), we demonstrated how epidural stimulation can improve upper body exercise capacity via the modulation of cardiovascular and respiratory function. The full study can be found here.
Thank you to the many authors and contributors of these two publications, from our lab as well as others. We are very excited to continue our collaboration with Dr. Krassioukov’s group – look out for more papers from our labs in the future!
