OBJECTIVE Postural instability limits ambulatory capacity in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). Galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) was used to investigate the integrity of vestibulospinal pathways and related changes in postural responses in SCI. METHODS Binaural bipolar galvanic stimuli of 400 ms duration and 3 mA intensity were applied in 8 motor incomplete SCI and 8 control subjects who stood facing towards the left. EMG responses were recorded from the right soleus muscle and the… CONTINUE READING
