OBJECTIVE To evaluate a selective implantable drop foot stimulator (ActiGait) in terms of effect on walking and safety. DESIGN A phase II trial in which a consecutive sample of participants acted as their own controls. SUBJECTS People who had suffered a stroke at least 6 months prior to recruitment and had a drop-foot that affected walking were(More)
Introduction. Most spinal-cord-injured patients have constipation. One-third develop chronic abdominal pain 10 years or more after injury. Nevertheless, very little is known about the nature of abdominal pain after spinal cord injury (SCI). It may be neuropathic or caused by constipation. Aim. To compare characteristics of abdominal pain in SCI with(More)
INTRODUCTION Upper motor neuron disorders are believed to leave the peripheral nervous system (PNS) intact. In this study we examined whether there is evidence of PNS involvement in spinal cord injury (SCI). METHODS Twelve subjects with chronic low cervical or thoracic SCI were included prospectively. Needle electromyography was done in 10 different(More)
INTRODUCTION The diagnostic criteria for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) require normal sensory nerve conduction studies (NCS) or abnormal NCS only in the presence of neuropathy of identified etiology. In this study, we investigated the presence and extent of involvement of Aß sensory fibers in ALS. METHODS Distal sensory NCS [antidromic dorsal sural(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to quantify upper motor neuron (UMN) involvement in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) by the soleus stretch reflex. METHODS In a group of 24 ALS patients and ten healthy controls the soleus stretch reflex was elicited by a four degree rotation at the ankle joint. Amplitude of the short-latency stretch reflex,(More)
