Recent studies have shown that a locomotor pattern can be induced and utilized by paraplegic patients under conditions of body unloading using a moving treadmill. The present study investigated the behaviour of the locomotor pattern and also the relationship of its development to the spontaneous recovery of spinal cord function assessed by clinical and electrophysiological (tibial nerve somatosensory evoked potentials and motor evoked potentials) examinations. The earliest time that spinal… CONTINUE READING
