NEUWalk - The Project
NEUWalk is a European Research project involving 9 partners, three of which are industrial partners, from across 6 EU countries. The nearly €9M project, partly funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for Research and Technological Development, launched on the 1st June, 2010, is planned to run for 4 years.
NEUWalk - Project Aims
"The goal of NEUWalk is to develop a brain spinal neuroprosthetic interface system to restore voluntary motor functions in people with severe SCI and to establish a less invasive and safer surgical strategy to alleviate PD syndromes. To achieve this objective, NEUWalk will capitalize on recent breakthroughs gained at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, in the Experimental Neurorehabilitation Laboratory, headed by Dr. Grégoire Courtine, scientific manager in NEUWalk. These researchers reported the impressive capacity of pharmacological and electrical spinal cord stimulations to promote full weight bearing walking in paralyzed SCI rats when combined with rehabilitation."
