Restoring locomotion following spinal cord injury (SCI) has been the focus of years of research aimed at ameliorating several of health-related comorbidities. Spinal cord epidural stimulation (SCES) exhibits the rehabilitation potential of restoring locomotion in individuals with SCI when combined with intensive locomotion training. Despite this potential, such protocols are likely impractical when applied across large clinical SCI populations due to high monetary costs. Similar to SCES, transsp...
