Brain Plasticity is the Key to Recovery post Stroke or BI

January 8, 2017

plasticity_infographic_4The future for people recovering from strokes and brain injuries is more optimistic than it has ever been for three important reasons.

  1. There is tremendous amount of research showing that the brain is plastic throughout life, and this plasticity can be harnessed after brain injury also.
  2. Recent advances in technology allow patients to receive therapy at their homes at their convenience, empowering them to take control of their therapy instead of being passive consumers.

First paralyzed human treated with stem cells regains upper body movement

December 18, 2016

After a MVA left him paralyzed, doctors warned Kris Boesen’s parents that he might never be able to function from the neck down again.

Kris was offered the opportunity to go through a potentially life-changing procedure involving stem cells. The experimental procedure did not guarantee any restoration to Kris’s paralysis, but to him, the risk was worth taking.

The process began in April where USC Dr. Liu injected 10 million AST-OPC1 cells directly into Kris’ cervical spinal cord.
