Dustin Shillcox explains epidural stimulation that restores movement after SCI

“In 2013, Dustin Shillcox became 1 of the first 4 people in the world to be a part of groundbreaking epidural stimulation research at the University of Louisville.  A set of electrodes was surgically implanted onto his spinal cord below the level of his injury and a small power pack was implanted into his abdomen.  When the pack is turned on, an electric current is sent to the electrodes, which stimulates his spinal cord into action.”
