The feasibility of a brain-computer interface functional electrical stimulation system for the restoration of overground walking after paraplegia.
 

Author(s): Christine E King, Po T Wang, Colin M McCrimmon, Cathy C Y Chou, An H Do, Zoran Nenadic

Journal:

 

Direct brain control of overground walking in those with paraplegia due to spinal cord injury (SCI) has not been achieved. Invasive brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) may provide a permanent solution to this problem by directly linking the brain to lower extremity prostheses. To justify ...
