About this trial

This is a rehabilitation trial enrolling individuals with low cervical or thoracic spinal cord injuries (C6-T12) or other paralyzing conditions to test a surgically implanted electrical stimulation device. The research team wants to determine whether the device helps with exercise, standing, stepping and/or balance. The stimulation device is implanted into muscles of the trunk and legs. After surgery, training will occur for standing and other skills with the stimulation on, at the laboratory, and at home. Participants will be monitored every 6 months for the first year and every year thereafter.
