Paralyzed​ men to walk again due to a spinal implant

After being continually told that they would never walk again, three men underwent a surgery in Switzerland and for the first time in a long time, there is hope.

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is the foundation that made these surgeries possible. The surgery inserted an electrical device that wrapped around each man’s spine and stimulated growth in healing in their spines by sending electrical impulses.

The doctors are hoping that this treatment will help the men regain independent movement in their legs.
