High-performance neuroprosthetic control by an individual with tetraplegia
BACKGROUND Paralysis or amputation of an arm results in the loss of the ability to orient the hand and grasp, manipulate, and carry objects, functions that are essential for activities of dailyExpand
Brain-Controlled Interfaces: Movement Restoration with Neural Prosthetics
Brain-controlled interfaces are devices that capture brain transmissions involved in a subject's intention to act, with the potential to restore communication and movement to those who are immobilized. Expand
An Electrocorticographic Brain Interface in an Individual with Tetraplegia
Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology aims to help individuals with disability to control assistive devices and reanimate paralyzed limbs. Our study investigated the feasibility of anExpand
Biomechanical Energy Harvesting: Generating Electricity During Walking with Minimal User Effort
We have developed a biomechanical energy harvester that generates electricity during human walking with little extra effort. Expand
Functional priorities, assistive technology, and brain-computer interfaces after spinal cord injury.
Spinal cord injury (SCI) often affects a person's ability to perform critical activities of daily living and can negatively affect his or her quality of life. Assistive technology aims to bridge thisExpand
Xenogeneic extracellular matrix as an inductive scaffold for regeneration of a functioning musculotendinous junction.
The prevailing dogma in tissue engineering is cell-centric. One shortcoming of this approach is the failure to provide the implanted cells with a suitable in vivo microenvironment that promotesExpand
An Acellular Biologic Scaffold Promotes Skeletal Muscle Formation in Mice and Humans with Volumetric Muscle Loss
Scaffolds composed of cell-free extracellular matrix promote de novo formation of functional skeletal muscle tissue in sites of volumetric muscle loss. Cell-Free Matrix Refills Muscle In traumaticExpand
Human motor cortical activity recorded with Micro-ECoG electrodes, during individual finger movements
In this study human motor cortical activity was recorded with a customized micro-ECoG grid during individual finger movements. Expand
Comparison of Surface and Ultrasound Localization to Identify Forearm Flexor Muscles for Botulinum Toxin Injections
To determine if ultrasound (US) localization is equivalent to surface landmark localization to identify botulinum toxin injection targets for forearm muscle spasticity.
Cyclic functional electrical stimulation does not enhance gains in hand grasp function when used as an adjunct to onabotulinumtoxinA and task practice therapy: a single-blind, randomized controlled
OBJECTIVE To determine whether onabotulinumtoxinA injections and task practice training with or without functional electrical stimulation (FES) improve upper limb motor function in chronic spasticExpand
