Scientific Abstract

There is provided a stimulation device for treatment of gait impairment of a patient. The stimulation device is configured to apply respective stimulation signals to electrodes bilaterally implanted in two subcortical regions of the left and right hemispheres of the brain of the patient, the subcortical regions being associated with motor control. The stimulation device is configured to apply respective stimulation signals having a rate of electrical energy delivered that is modulated with alternating waveforms at a gait frequency and out of phase with each other.
