Wireless Brain–Spine Interface Could Help Paraplegics Walk Again




Non-human primates have regained control of their paralyzed leg thanks to a neuroprosthetic interface that acts as a wireless bridge between the brain and spine, bypassing the injury. The interface was developed in an international collaboration led by EPFL. A feasibility clinical study has begun at the Lausanne University Hospital in Switzerland to test the therapeutic effects of the spine-part of the interface in people with spinal cord injury.
