Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Multi-site study explores new approach to upper limb dysfunction after spinal cord injury

(Kessler Foundation) Acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) is a new strategy that may have the potential to increase neuroplasticity in individuals with injuries of the spinal cord. Scientists plan to test whether repetitive administration of AIH can result in better hand and arm function in individuals with incomplete cervical SCI. ‘This is an exciting project that may change the way we think about rehabilitation for spinal cord injury,’ said Dr. Kirshblum.
