Cycling for Spinal Cord Injuries

Here is an intresting medical breakthrough I found reading the news this afternoon. The medical field is using stationary bicycles for cardiovascular workouts for paralyzed patients. An electrical stimulation is used to contract the muscles for pedaling. This story tells about a young lady with a spinal cord injury who was able to walk after using the physical therapy method of stationary cycling.

Quite simple yet quite amazing.

really is oustanding news, and hopefully besides aiding in a positive light it will give them some insight towards possible nerve rejuvenation or more stimulation
