BACKGROUND Locomotor training with a robot-assisted gait orthosis (LT-RGO) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) are interventions that can significantly enhance motor performance after spinal cord injury (SCI). No studies have investigated whether combining these interventions enhances lower extremity motor function following SCI. OBJECTIVE Determine whether active tDCS paired with LT-RGO improves lower extremity motor function more than a sham condition, in subjects with motor… CONTINUE READING
