Abstract : We are submitting our Annual progress report for our grant entitled Restoring Bladder Function by Spinal Cord Neuromodulation in SCI (SC103209).Over the last year, we have initiated and completed the pilot study on five nave subjects and their follow-up and started to delineate the best magnetic stimulating parameter for restoring bladder function in SCI patients. As you will see in the report, we have noticed a significant difference between high frequency and low frequency magnetic stimulations in order to restoring urinary functions in SCI individuals. This also correlates with some electrophsiological findings. In the upcoming year, we are planning on enrolling more subjects to continue testing our hypothesis and complete the pilot phase of the study. As you can appreciate from the progress report, we remain on time to accomplish the tasks set forth in the study. We believe this study will yield important information to restore bladder function in SCI patients that will make a dramatic impact on the lives of those living with SCI.
