    'Bionic spinal cord' helps stroke victims walk again: Brain implant lets patients control an exoskeleton using their MIND

    • Australian researchers developed the paperclip-sized brain implant
    • It records brain activity and converts the signals to move an exoskeleton
    • 'Revolutionary' device could give paralysed patience independence back
    • The first in-human trial is planned for 2017 at The Royal Melbourne Hospital

    More than 15 million people suffer strokes worldwide each year, with a third of victims left permanently disabled.
    However, there is fresh hope for those left paralysed after researchers developed what they have called a 'bionic spinal cord'
    The bionic cord consists of a paperclip-sized implant that lets wearers control an exoskeleton with just the power of thought.
