'e-Dura' Spinal Implant Could Make Paralyzed Walk Again

I personally think this new technology is more for SCI patients that have a specific location of the injury.

Science may soon lead the paralyzed to walking again as a new cyborg-like technology is making waves in spinal cord injury research. Researchers at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne) have developed a tiny, ribbon-like prosthetic which has restored movement in paralyzed rats.

The implant, dubbed “e-Dura,” for the ...

Long story short my issues began at age 18 when I woke up one morning and couldn't see out of my right eye. The ER flushed it and I could still not see. Went to the eye ...
