THE SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF THE USE OF A BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE-BASED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD TREATMENT IN THE MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC SPINAL CORD INJURY (SCI) PATIENTS - A PILOT STUDY

Purpose

To evaluate the safety and efficacy of non-invasive, low intensity and low frequency electromagnetic fields targeting the central nervous system (CNS).  Application of electromagnetic fields will be administered as an adjunctive treatment along with physical therapy, with the goal of enhancing the recovery process in people with SCI.

 

Criteria

Incomplete, cervical-level spinal cord injury (AIS B-D); 12-30 months postinjury;18-75 years old; GRASSP strength subscore of 5-35 on at least one side.
