Spatiotemporal EES reproduces the natural activation of the spinal cord. Delivery of EES bursts matching the spatial and temporal dynamics of natural motor neuron activation immediately enables locomotion after SCI. Decoding algorithms detect foot movements in order to adjust the location and timing of the spatiotemporal stimulation sequences to the current needs of the patient. The spinal cord activation map is reconstructed based on the projection of electromyographic recordings onto the theoretical location of motor neurons in the spinal cord
