Kowalski, Krzysztof E, PhD

The purpose of our studies is to restore respiratory muscle function in patients with spinal cord injury. We are developing systems for electrical activation of the inspiratory muscles to maintain full-time ventilatory support in patients with ventilator-dependent tetraplegia and electrical activation of the expiratory muscles to provide an effective cough mechanism in patients with expiratory…

Jenkins, Michael, PhD

In recent years, it has been become clear that modulating the autonomic nervous system has great potential for treating diseases. Neuromodulation of the vagus nerve has shown potential to treat several diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, epilepsy, hypertension, obesity, heart failure, and coma. Neuromodulation devices potentially have several advantages over pharmaceuticals including reduced side effects and…
