      Longitudinal recovery and reduced costs after 120 sessions of locomotor training for motor incomplete spinal cord injury.
      we welcome the opportunity to add more explanation to our methods and scientific rationale. The letter seems to revolve around 4 main concerns: missing data from subjects receiving <120 locomotor training sessions, lack of reported adverse events, data collection methods, and interpretation of economic analyses. We will address each concern individually.
