About this trial

This trial is enrolling 50 individuals with acute (< 1 year) traumatic spinal cord injuries to test the effect of transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation (TSCS) on blood pressure. TSCS is a technique for stimulating the spinal cord via skin-surface stimulation to modify spinal cord function. If included, participants will receive TSCS for blood pressure control. Final testing for safety and blood pressure changes will be performed after 4 months.
