ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on the rerouting also known as peripheral-nerve transfer, a potential procedure to treat spinal-cord injury and disease (SCI). The author states that rerouting is an easy to understand procedure which can be learned in China. The author mentions the nerve-transfer procedures, developed by doctor Justin Brown of the University of California-San Diego, which shows a promising result but is restricted in anatomical features for people with quadriplegia.
