      It is an incredible experience to be part of. Getting our participant to stand is a long process that requires a lot of training at home. Seeing the changes from the initial visits to months afterwards where we have people standing with the help of electrical stimulation is extremely rewarding. Of course this by far neither a cure nor treatment of any sort, but such improvements within the study are nonetheless very exciting.
