          Abstract

          Individuals with spinal cord injury or neurological disorders may develop bladder contractions at low volumes (neurogenic detrusor overactivity), which can lead to significant health problems. Present devices can inhibit unwanted contractions through continuous electrical stimulation of sensory nerves, but do not enable conditional stimulation only at the onset of bladder contractions. The objectives of this study were to determine the relationship between the electrical activity of external anal sphincter (EAS) and bladder pressure during neurogenic detrusor contractions and to determine whether EAS activity could be used to detect the onset of bladder contractions.
