‘Bionic’ spinal cord trial for humans

A "revolutionary" device implanted in a brain blood vessel may one day enable people with spinal cord injuries to walk again, say Melbourne researchers.

Their limbs won't be reactivated, but the person's direct thought may be able to control equipment that can move the limbs.

The device is a minimally invasive brain machine interface - a bionic implant that translates thought into action.
