In the future, scientists will be able to restore control to paralyzed limbs due to a spinal cord injury. As this video from EPFL shows, researchers are already working on a brain-spine neuroprosthetic interface that allows a primate gain control of a paralyzed limb.
The interface acts as a bridge between the brain and spine. An implantable stimulator is used to deliver stimulation at the correct location, at the right time based on signals from the brain. Has a lot of potential, don’t you think?
