No crutches. You can use your hands while wearing it.

Maybe not fully right yet, but perhaps an improvement over other competitors.

Would be better if they could repair spinal cord, "it will happen". Stuff like that is for laboratories.

I might be able to do that. A spinal cord is just a bunch of wires right? Block connectors...

But I cant find any volunteers. :cussing

18 months ago there was a russian guy all over the news there was getting a head transplant. Presumably that didnt work out well. Because we heard no more. :fencing

Take the piss bm but it will happen one day not in your life or even mine, if they can insert alteree gentic code via crispr or have a mouse regain some function after servered cord then stimulating the nerve ending to reattach/regrow seems within reach in a couple of generations. Exo Skelton will end up being a military item.

I agree. But not for a long time.

I looked that guy up. He changed his mind after falling in love and marrying a pretty fit russian bird...

Cant say I blame him. That surgeon moved to china to practice on the chinese, I kid you not! :shock:
