    what I don't understand is: how can they call it "unassisted" walking when it is totally assisted walking. Albeit by electrodes

    I'll take a look at it tomorrow (http://www.thelancet.com/journals/la...article_upsell)

    But sounds like total crap.
    Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

    Presumably movement without sensation. Interesting and may have some limited potential. If they are able to control the stimulator with the brain by means of electrodes implanted above the injury site, that will be encouraging.

    Hype hype and more hype, news channels are not a reliable source to get exact info
    Many won't agree here but this is it,
    It's a damm shame to get this as breaking news all over the world, really means that we are so far off from a real cure break. the fact is 150 years ago people like me were offered a wheelchair today we are still offered a wheelchair. Everyday we read posts about breaking news just to fizzle out and never be heard of again. remember Amanda Boxtel and her hype about Geeta Shroff so save your intergalactic orgasmic reactions for now
