Video: paralysed man walks with the power of thought

Using bluetooth, neuroscientists and neurosurgeons said they had re-established the communication between the brain and a damaged spinal cord with a wireless digital bridge, allowing a paralysed man to walk again. Dutchman Gert-Jan Oskam, 40, was paralysed in a cycling accident 12 years ago. Through electronic implants, his thoughts are wirelessly transmitted to his legs and feet, facilitated by a second implant located on his spine, the journal Nature reported. Although the system is currently in an experimental phase, a prominent spinal charity in the UK described it as “highly promising.”
