Are paralyzed people really paralyzed? Probably not, according to EMG analysis

Proceedings of the Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1988

Quantitative electromyographic analysis of 40 paralyzed muscles in ten spinal- cord-injured subjects was performed. The majority of muscles (32/40) demonstrated increased myoelectric activity but no observable gross muscle movement as a result of voluntary effort. Some subjects with paralysis retain miniature motor potentials. Increase in the magnitude of these potentials may explain the return of function seen by clinicians after ...

Restoration of reduced or lost voluntary control after spinal cord injury (SCI) in humans is a key goal of SCI research. Objective methods to assess the degree of remaining motor control are lacking.

Proceedings of the First Joint BMES/EMBS Conference. 1999 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 21st Annual Conference and the 1999 Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (Cat. N, 1999

Spinal cord injury is a devastating disorder of the central nervous system (CNS), resulting in loss of function below the site of injury. While spinal cord axons can regenerate in a permissive environment, such as the peripheral nerve, they show only limited, if any, regeneration in the CNS. The authors are investigating a synthetic conduit that mimics some of the ...

  • 6.7: Presentation session: Neuroanatomy, neuroregeneration, and modelings: “Spinal cord injuries (SCI) and Tennessee's contributions to the Americans for Disabilities Act”

    The Americans for Disabilities Act (ADA) arose from a need for access for disabled people for public and private facilities. The driving force behind providing access for handicapped individuals was initiated through the first White House Conference on Handicapped Individuals in 1975–6 throughout the United States. One of the most successful conferences was held in Nashville, TN in September 1976, where over 1200 handicapped individuals attended a three day conference highlighting the needs of all types of disabled people. The author was instrumental in bringing a number of these concerns to the attention of President Carter and the Department of Health and Human Services. In particular, Tennessee was exemplary in creating national building and access codes for spinal cord injured people that eventually brought these changes in access for all handicapped individuals in the US through the ADA. The author provides some unique experiences in how to create change in a climate of significant resistance within the Federal government.

  • Investigating strategies to enhance axonal regeneration in the CNS

    Spinal cord injury is a devastating disorder of the central nervous system (CNS), resulting in loss of function below the site of injury. While spinal cord axons can regenerate in a permissive environment, such as the peripheral nerve, they show only limited, if any, regeneration in the CNS. The authors are investigating a synthetic conduit that mimics some of the attributes of the peripheral nerve while allowing the axons to penetrate beyond the conduit into the CNS. In particular, they are studying both contact-mediated and diffusible cues to promote regeneration. To mimic contact mediated cues, the authors are modifying surfaces with one or both of the cell adhesive peptides of laminin-YIGSR and IKVAV-and studying cellular response in vitro. To mimic the diffusible cues, the authors are studying the release and bioactivity of neurotrophic factors and the effects of a nerve growth factor (NGF) concentration gradient on axonal migration in vitro.

  • Microelectronic channel bridge and signal regeneration of injured spinal cords

    We are searching for a way to generate neural function recovery by introducing an implantable microelectronic system. Prototypes of the so-called microelectronic neural-bridging systems have been realized in the form of integrated circuits. The integrated circuits were realized in a standard CMOS process. In a series of animal experiments, we have demonstrated that an interrupted spinal cord could be bridged and neural signals were regenerated. The idea of microelectronics channel bridging and signal regeneration of injured spinal cords was primarily demonstrated.

  • An electromechanical testing device for assessment of hand motor function

    Instrumentation was designed and constructed to assess the strength and function of the intrinsic muscles of the index and long fingers of the hand. The device consisted of two beams instrumented with strain gages, signal conditioners, and a microprocessor-based embedded controller. A study conducted on four weak spinal cord injury (SCI), three nonweak SCI, and 21 control subjects demonstrated a trend of reduced maximum pinching force between the index and long fingers in weak SCI subjects compared with the other two groups. Weak SCI subjects also demonstrated a significantly slower rapid alternating movement speed of the index finger compared with the other two groups. The instrument has potential use as a clinical tool for quantitative evaluation of the progression of hand motor dysfunction.

  • Detection and classification of sensory information from acute spinal cord recordings

    One avenue of research for partial restoration of function following spinal cord injury is the use of neural prostheses, an example of which is functional electrical stimulation (FES) devices for motor functions. Neural prostheses may also be useful for the extraction of sensory information directly from the nervous system. We suggest the spinal cord as a possible site for the detection of peripheral sensory information from neural activity alone. Acute multichannel extracellular recordings were used to extract neural spike activity elicited from peripheral sensations from the spinal cords of rats. To test the recording method and classification potential, eight classes of sensory events were recorded consisting of electrical stimulation of seven locations on rat forepaws, and another class of data during which no stimulus was present. A dual-stage classification scheme using principal component analysis and k-Means clustering was devised to classify the sensory events during single trials. The eight tasks were correctly identified at a mean accuracy of 96%. Thus, we have shown the methodology to detect and classify peripheral sensory information from multichannel recordings of the spinal cord. These methods may be useful, for example, in a closed-loop FES for restoration of hand grasp

  • Approaches for restoring elbow extension in tetraplegia: muscle tendon transfer and functional neuromuscular stimulation

    Tetraplegia resulting from cervical spinal cord injury typically leaves the muscles paralyzed, with the resulting loss extension function. Elbow extension is for many daily activities, important in the rehabilitation of the spinal cord injured individual. This paper compares the widely used surgical transfer of the posterior deltoid muscle, which restores voluntary control over elbow extension, to a technique based on functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) of the triceps muscles. Both methods were found to restore a modest level of elbow extension. The posterior deltoid transfer produced variable results and the resulting elbow extension moments were strongly dependent on shoulder position.
