Julia Giammona, 16, was born with cerebral palsy and has been in a wheelchair most of her life. But thanks to a new treatment invented by College of Staten Island physical therapy professor Zaghloul Ahmed, she has been able to walk with crutches for the past three years. "The PathMaker Neuromuscular Treatment System device and procedure is a combination of three configurations of electrical stimulation," says Ahmed of the CUNY-patented method. "Our treatment is to target all three areas to strengthen the connection between the brain, spinal cord and a muscle."
