Our study, entitled, “The feasibility of a brain-computer interface functional electrical stimulation system for the restoration of overground walking after paraplegia,” was recently published in the Journal of Neuroengineering and Rehabilitation. This study described how a man with T6 spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia was able to utilize his EEG signals to control a BCI-FES system to walk overground. This represents the first time that a person was able to re-establish “brain-controlled” walking using such technology. The history of this study can be found here.
