    Wow the thing I noticed was the quad with the tattoos. I don't recall in the last video him having any hand function.

    I see the hand thing is good at speculation but so far what I gather of Epidural stimulation is that the main focus should not be that people are kinda doing some limited standing; the return of autonomic functions should be a bigger story in my eyes

    Oh I agree. Being a quad that is just the first thing my eyes focused on.

    I know...this really turned me on. Even after 14 years c-6-7.
    I have been able to move toes on my left foot since injury in 2001.

    How does a spinal stimulator effect functional recovery? What is the meaning of "voluntary standing." Is this the equivalent of manipulating your body to cause a spasm? Or is there real signal from the brain getting through the site of injury? Where is a good reference on how this technology works?

    Have you noticed that reporters love to cling to the word "someday" when they refer to spinal recovery? It's as if, talking about recovery in the near-term is a crime or something
