Electrode array allows paralysed man to stand

Researchers have used a stimulating electrode array to assist a paralysed man to stand, step on a treadmill with assistance, and, over time, to regain voluntary movements of his limbs. The electrical signals provided by the array stimulate the spinal cord’s own neural network so that it can use the sensory input derived from the legs to direct muscle and joint movements.
