In individuals with motor-complete spinal cord injury, epidural stimulation of the lumbosacral spinal cord at 2 Hz evokes unmodulated reflexes in the lower limbs, while stimulation at 22-60 Hz can generate rhythmic burstlike activity. Here we elaborated on an output pattern emerging at transitional stimulation frequencies with consecutively elicited(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of peripheral nerve field stimulation (PNFS) for chronic low back pain (cLBP). MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective, multicenter observational study, 118 patients were admitted to 11 centers throughout Austria and Switzerland. After a screening visit, all patients(More)
Constant drive provided to the human lumbar spinal cord by epidural electrical stimulation can cause local neural circuits to generate rhythmic motor outputs to lower limb muscles in people paralysed by spinal cord injury. Epidural spinal cord stimulation thus allows the study of spinal rhythm and pattern generating circuits without their configuration by(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of unilateral stimulation of the nucleus ventralis intermedius (VIM) on parkinsonian signs like postural stability and locomotion with respect to the severity of Parkinson's disease (PD). Seven patients with idiopathic PD were included in the study. Changes in visual cues on postural stability and step(More)
