  2. Proportion of subjects with improvement in sensory scores [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  3. Proportion of subjects with improvement in hip abduction/adduction or great toe flexion/extension [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  4. Proportion of subjects with improvement in bowel function [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  5. Proportion of subjects with improvement in bladder function [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  6. Proportion of subjects with improvement in SCIM III [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  7. Proportion of subjects with improvement in QLI-SCI III [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  8. Proportion of subjects with decreased pain [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  9. Incidence of all Adverse Device Effects of any kind/seriousness. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
