Spinal Cord Injury Research: Mayo Clinic Radio

Dr. Kristin Zhao, director of Mayo Clinic’s Assistive and Restorative Technology Laboratory, and Dr. Kendall Lee, director of Mayo Clinic’s Neural Engineering Laboratory, will discuss research that has successfully used intense physical therapy and electrical stimulation of the spinal cord to return voluntary movements to a previously paralyzed patient.

Dr. Peter Grahn, a Mayo Clinic neurobiology researcher, shares how a devastating injury inspired a career.

Recovery is now possible. Using a grant from the BEL13VE Foundation, in 2017 Mayo Clinic became the first medical center in the world to replicate and validate paralysis recovery results achieved using epidural stimulation.
