Being a revolutionary milestone in the treatment of spinal cord injuries, the Hospital Houston Methodist y ANEUVO, platform and therapy development company, They developed a pioneering method using non-invasive spinal stimulation. This advance, led by the doctor Dimitry Sayenkoassistant professor of neurosurgery, represents a significant step toward Effective rehabilitation of people with paralysis.

The study, published in the Journal of Neurotraumadetails the results of a sponsored clinical trial. Previously enrolled participants unable to stand independently received transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the spinal cord therapy for a month.

Such therapy allowed all subjects to maintain an upright posturewith minimal assistance on the joints, significantly improving their balance and muscle activity during weight shifting. This advancement promotes physical rehabilitation and also modulates spinal circuits, optimizing sensory inputs to maintain balance without external assistance.

Sayenko He stressed the importance of the plasticity of the central nervous system. Highlighting the ongoing commitment of his team, this therapy can improve motor control and autonomic functionality of patients. In addition to its direct impact on rehabilitation, This technological advance has profound implications in neuroscience and medicine..

The collaboration between the Houston Methodist Hospital and ANEUVO illustrate the potential of bioelectronic technologies to address chronic diseases in innovative ways. With the success of the clinical trial, the need for continued research and refinement of these cutting-edge techniques can be highlighted.

“We are particularly interested in exploring strategies to regain functionality during activities of daily living, as well as to improve control of motor and autonomic functions,” said Dr. Sayenko.

As our understanding of the neural mechanisms involved deepens, the door is opened to future developments that could further transform neuromuscular rehabilitation.

In summary, Noninvasive spinal stimulation emerges as real promise for people with spinal cord injuriesThis therapy offers the possibility of regaining the ability to stand and significantly improving quality of life through greater independence and functionality.
