Step Up is an international competition of research projects aims to support and develop research work across the world.
Research groups from 20 countries could present their projects in neurophysiology, electrodiagnostics, rehabilitation, neuromodulation, psychophysiology, polysomnography and audiology and receive selected equipment for research work free of charge for up to 3 years.
During the year 2022, we were accepting applications from science teams. Today we are pleased to announce the winners of the project:
- Maria Bedova from Federal State Budgetary Institution “Children's Research and Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases of Federal Medical Biological Agency” (Saint-Petersburg, Russia). Neuro-MS magnetic stimulator will be delivered to the research center to carry out “Study of Neurophysiological Methods for Early Prognosis of the Poor Outcome of Bell’s Palsy in Children”.
- Tatyana Vlasova from National Research Mordovia State University (Saransk, Russia). Neurostim transcranial electrical stimulator will be delivered to the research center to carry out “Study of tDSC effectiveness in the correction of chronic pain in patients with gonarthrosis”.
- Nikita Gorbachev from I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (Sechenov University) (Moscow, Russia). Neuron-Spectrum-AM ambulatory wireless EEG/PSG recorder and Neurostim transcranial electrical stimulator will be delivered for the study “Clinical and Neurophysiological Pattern of Augmentation in Restless Legs Syndrome”.
- Evgeny Levin from E.N. Meshalkin National Medical Research Center (Novosibirsk, Russia). Neuro-IOM system for intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring will be delivered for the study “Increasing Signal-to-Noise Ratio for Effective Intraoperative Monitoring of Sensory Evoked Potentials”.
- Dmitry Shipika from Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry (Moscow, Russia). Neuro-MEP NCS, EMG and EP system will be delivered to the research center to carry out the study “Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Use of a Combination Carboxytherapy and Mechanotherapy in the Treatment of Patients with TMJ PDS (K07.6) and Restriction of Mouth Opening”.
Research teams will soon begin working on their projects. We'll be sharing interesting news about their progress and discoveries with you on the competition page. Stay tuned!
