The Effects of Epidural Stimulation on Individuals With Spinal Cord Injury or Disease: A Scoping Review
With guest speaker, Hope Jervis Rademeyer, MPT, PhD(c)
27 JANUARY // 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Join this webinar to learn more about the current landscape of epidural stimulation and how it can potentially affect functional goals for individuals with spinal cord injury or disease.
