Ecological principles should guide the development of bioelectronic technology for SCI. Making the technology useable in the patient’s natural setting is paramount to its utility. This photograph illustrates the technological framework that enables real-time control of EES outside the laboratory environment. Developing technology based on these ecological principles will require the input and collaborative effort of multiple specialties including neurosurgeons, neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists, engineers, and scientists in order to make bioelectronic technology for patients with SCI safe and user-friendly
