VA researchers at the Cleveland Advanced Platform Technology (APT) Center are using a hybrid of Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) and conventional bracing to allow Veterans who are paralyzed from the chest down to stand and walk.

This research, among others, will be highlighted at the 2012 VA Research Week Forum April 26 at VA Central Office in Washington. VA's 2012 Research Week is April 23-27. See for the Section 508 compliant version of this video. For information, go to
