A dream became a reality for scientists dedicated to changing the lives of people with spinal cord injury—and for those striving to recover—at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Tim and Caroline Reynolds Center for Spinal Stimulation at Kessler Foundation.
The Reynolds Center, which is dedicated to restoring function to people with paralysis, is equipped with the latest technologies. Research in spinal stimulation is led by director Gail Forrest, PhD, and co-director Steven Kirshblum, MD. The Reynolds Center is named for Tim and Caroline Reynolds, supporters of the Foundation’s spinal cord injury research.
The research team at the Reynolds Center is studying transcutaneous spinal stimulation, which is applied externally, over the area of injury, to improve individuals’ ability to move their arms and legs paralyzed by spinal cord injury. Next, the team will surgically implant stimulators directly on the spinal cord, a promising technique called epidural stimulation developed at the University of Louisville. Researching both types of stimulation—transcutaneous and epidural—places the Reynolds Center at the forefront of spinal stimulation research.
