Bionic Implant Restores Mobility In Monkeys

Recently in a first of its kind science research experiment an international team of scientists collaborated together to implant a wireless neural network in a pair of Rhesus Macaque (monkeys) to restore mobility in their temporarily paralyzed legs. They did so by bypassing the spinal cord injury with “brain-spine interface” implants, restoring intentional walking movement. The discovery is first of its kind because of its use of a neural prosthetic implant allowing for the restoration of movement.
