A Spine Tingling boost for Project Edge
If you’ve ever wondered about the power of individual effort and community support, this is a story for you!
SpinalCure was very pleased earlier this year to be named as a co-beneficiary of the inaugural ‘Spine Tingling Ride’, but when we heard that Andrew Kerec was planning to ride 5,500 km across Australia from Canberra to Humpty Doo for Project Edge we thought he was a little bit crazy, but were naturally intrigued. After speaking with Andrew, we found out that he had a deeply personal connection to the cause.
Project Edge – neurostimulation collaboration
Project Edge is an exciting collaboration between the University of Technology, Sydney and Spinal Cure Australia to fund the first clinical research program outside of the U.S. of ground-breaking research by Professor Reggie Edgerton and his colleagues at UCLA. In a world first, they have managed to re-awaken the spinal cord and successfully restore feeling and function to over 30 paralyzed people using neurostimulation.
