We are dedicated to developing disease and injury specific devices to help restore optimal physiology function in individuals suffering with paralysis due to injury and illness. We accomplish this by enabling the reactivation of damaged and dormant neural circuits through … Continue reading
The University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Professor Edgerton, SpinalCure Australia (SpinalCure) and Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) have collaborated on Project Edge to establish the first clinical neurostimulation research program outside the USA. The flagship program in a multi-stream SCI recovery … Continue reading
SpinalCure is thrilled to announce that world-renowned neuroscientist, Professor Reggie Edgerton, will be coming to Australia to help establish a ground-breaking neurostimulation initiative for people with spinal cord injury. The neurostimulation project will sit within the newly formed Centre for … Continue reading
Use of peripheral nerve stimulation to locate interneurons associated with group i and group ii afferents in intact mouse spinal cords
Society for Neuroscience Chicago 2015 Spinal Cord Injury I SCI Injury and Plasticity Authors: B.N. Pham: H. Zhong: R. Roy: N.J. Tillakaratne: V. Edgerton The role of proprioceptive input on locomotor recovery after a spinal cord injury (SCI) has been … Continue reading
A novel method for recording long term EMG activity in the laboratory and at home in individuals with cervical SCI
Society for Neuroscience Chicago Nanosymposium Advances in SCI Research and Plasticity We have previously recorded long term EMG activity using shorts with embedded electromyography (EMG) sensors on healthy subjects (Finni et al. 2007) and office workers (Pesola et al. 2014). … Continue reading

Non-invasive approaches of neural locomotor network activation in non-injured subjects placed in vertical suspended position
The mammalian lumbar spinal cord has the capability to generate locomotor activity in the absence of input from the brain. Previously, we reported that transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the spinal cord at vertebral level T11 can activate the locomotor circuitry … Continue reading
Spinal cord epidural stimulation and climb training enhance axon regeneration in rats transplanted with olfactory ensheathing cells after a complete spinal cord transection
Implantation of olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) after a spinal cord lesion has been shown to promote axon regeneration across the lesion site and to promote some functional recovery. In addition, a regimen of rehabilitative motor training facilitates the extent of … Continue reading
