'Extraordinary' device could let paralysed people regain movement in arms and hands

The electrical stimulator could one day be used to help people with paralysis to walk, as well as improve recovery from strokes, say researchers.

A device that sends an electrical "buzz" through the skin could allow people who were paralysed several decades ago to regain movement in their arms and hands.

The ARC-EX device sends an electrical current to the spinal cord through surface electrodes, increasing strength, sensation and ability to move in people with paraplegia.

I’d say that this is great news if the device is proven to be this successful and useful.
