Thread: This will be good to watch on Sunday.

    Smile This will be good to watch on Sunday.

    I just saw a commercial with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, for Sunday's show 10, 2013 talking with a scientist regarding curing paralyzed people. Very interesting, and I try to find the time and the name of the scientist. If any one of you can find more, please let us know because it was sounded great. He was saying that the people who could not walk, they will walk again.

    Im with you on that. But I think these things might benefit in rehab facilities. Or even around the house. I use it for basic around the house chores and stuff i think. Hard to say until I try one. But with the current price tags....

    I think it would be great for exercise and maintaining range of motion, in addition to an intense PT program like PushtoWalkNJ.

    Not actually cheap. In the US I can't see anything other than private funding, and in UK the NHS/Social Services probably wouldn't help; = same result.
