Wireless implant could cure paralysis in future
In recent years, scientists have achieved brain control of robotic hands, helped a paralysed man regain use of a hand through a chip in his brain and used electrical stimulation of nerves in heal paralysed rats.
The system is unusual because it concentrates on the lower body, and is wireless rather than tethered to a computer. It utilises new developments in brain recording and in nerve stimulation. It does require a computer to decode and translate brain signals and send them to the spinal cord....
