About this trial

This trial is enrolling individuals with chronic thoracolumbar spinal cord injury to test the effect of a laparoscopic implantation of neuroprosthesis (LION) procedure on walking function. The LION is a procedure that involves the implantation of a device that applies electrical stimulation to nerves in the leg. If included, participants will undergo either 1) the LION procedure or 2) conventional stimulation of the leg nerves using surface electrodes placed on the skin. Final testing of walking function will be performed after 1 year.
