Professor Reggie Edgerton’s pioneering work has successfully returned function to people with spinal cord injuries, years after the original accident. He will be sharing details of his current successes and his vision for future SCI treatments at a public lecture on Thursday 12th May.
Using currents of electricity to ‘re-ignite’ injured spinal cords, Prof. Edgerton and his colleagues have given paralysed volunteers the ability to move their own limbs once more. The men have been able to once again control their bladders and bowels, function sexually, and stand upright.
The history of paralysis research is littered with unfulfilled expectations. However, SpinalCure, along with many of Australia’s leading physicians, believe Prof. Edgerton’s work could actually help large numbers of patients in the comparatively near future, making an immense improvement to their lives.
Prof. Edgerton will be in Sydney for one week as a guest of SpinalCure and The Faculty of Science, UTS.
