    For reference, the test subject is C5/C6 incomplete, AIS Grade C, and has partially retained sensation to light touch below that level but not pinprick.

    He has been in previous studies and has been walking with crutches since at least 2017.

        This seems a little bit different. More like neuralink than a stimulation device:

          is it just me or is anyone else SUPER leery of any brain implant Tech? I mean I understand the whole paralysis thing is horrible and unbearable but is a BRAIN implant only a dealbreaker to me? As I see this as the Tech that might not be easily avoidable, would anyone like to share their opinion on it?

            It's not just you, it's a deal breaker for me. I flagged this to the Onward CEO, it needs to be an option - not a mandatory part of the solution.

          I am confused. I am talking about the brain implant stuff ...I would rather not go the implant route at all but a Spinal implant such as ONWD would be palatable yet not ideal but the BRAIN implant stuff makes me seriously think twice

            This is both a brain implant and an implantable spinal cord stimulator working together. The brain implant tells the spinal cord stimulator when to stimulate.
            Previously the spinal cord stimulator was turn on all the time (this is what the guy had already) but now with the addition of the brain implant it only turns it on when he wants to walk.

            Several links have been posted to this story as reported in commercial media. But if anyone is interested in all the details, and has the ability to understand which I don't, here's a link to the paper in the scientific journal Nature. Apologies if this has already been posted.

              Yep. Dealbreaker. Iā€™m not sure anything will come along until AI and gene therapy team up, but I am willing to wait for it if the only other alternative is implanting some thing in my brain.

                I'm willing to let them cut off my entire head and put on a new one if that would work...

                But to each their own.

                remember that doctor that was actually going to do that and it was all over the news for a little minute? Doctor cavero or carvenero or something in like Spain or Portugal? Didn't mean to hijack the thread but Mitches comment reminded me

                    Old news hitting the news recycle to drum up more donations so over educated doc(s) can create a job (with a big paycheck) for himself(themselves). Insurance will never cover it so only the 1%-ers will be able to afford it. Nice dream but out of reach for most of us for the next 100 years. Oh well, back to reality.

                      You're willing to wait for something that might never happen? Is it just the fear of them messing something up with your brain during implant? Or fear of them being able to read your thoughts?

                        can "both" be an answer ...haha but seriously ...who here is down to have a brain implant? Curious who we might see going for it.
