Paradigms of Lower Extremity Electrical Stimulation Training After Spinal Cord Injury Ashraf S. Gorgey1,2, Refka E. Khalil1, Robert M. Lester1, Gary A. Dudley3, David R. Gater4 1Spinal Cord Injury and Disorders Service, Hunter Holmes McGuire VAMC, 2Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Virginia Commonwealth University, 3Deceased, Department of Kinesiology, The University of Georgia, 4Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Spinal cord injury is a traumatic medical condition that may result in elevated risks of chronic secondary metabolic disorders. Here, we presented a protocol using surface neuromuscular electrical stimulation-resistance training in conjunction with functional electrical stimulation-lower extremities cycling as a strategy to ameliorate several of these medical problems.
Fast and Simplified Method for High Through-put Isolation of miRNA from Highly Purified High Density Lipoprotein Mulugeta Seneshaw1, Faridoddin Mirshahi1, Hae-Ki Min1, Amon Asgharpour1, Shervin Mirshahi1, Kalyani Daita1, Sherry Boyett1, Prasanna K.
