Restoring function after spinal cord injury: Emerging techniques

Location

Roberts G08 Sir David Davies Lecture Theatre | Roberts Building (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

This talk will focus on two neuromodulatory therapies applied to humans with spinal cord injury (SCI): acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) and electrical stimulation. Both therapies have demonstrated improvements in motor function in people with SCI immediately after their application, which has rarely been reported with any rehabilitative intervention. Even small improvements in function may substantially improve quality of life for people living with SCI.

Speaker: Dr Lynsey Duffell was recently appointed as a Lecturer in the UCL Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. She works closely with the Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (CREATe) based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. Her work focuses on neuromodulatory therapies for humans with SCI, combining them with more traditional activity-based therapies to promote recovery of function.

The event will be followed by drinks, nibbles and an opportunity to network.
