    Fair enough... I just noticed that I was with the "implant me NOW" crowd but now I am seeing and accepting that more studying is necessary

    None of the original four have adapted it to their lives. Justin Shillcox was just showing everyone how to go up an escalator in a wheelchair. Hello 90’s.

    Starting to think it’s junk science.

    Yeah I watched that video and technically it had nothing to do with what a patient could do post-op versus pre-op... Merely an adaptive way that any ballsy para could ride an escalator regardless still in the wheelchair ... So I dunno bout that one or if he is not allowed to speak on unpublished data yet, or what

    She's not a builder either but still works in a building🤣. I guess you'd have to employ a urologist.
    Not doing the BBS studies when they made such a big deal about it with first four and knowing the importance to the community is rather irresponsible in my mind.
    And now repeating the claim with latest release but still failing to study it adds insult to injury. I don't blame them for not monitoring it for the first four because they said they were surprised, but failing to do it now leaves scratching my head.

    Help please.
    Because this JUST came out in the news I assumed that this was about new subjects, not the original four people. But after reading more and more, it looks like the article is about the original four.
    What I don't understand is; is it the original four after the initial research four or five years ago, or is it extra research on how they've progressed since then? Every time I think it's the latter, I read something that makes me think it's the former, and visa versa.
    Maybe I'm just not used to reading as much as I once did, but I can't figure it out. I'll keep reading and maybe answer my own question.

    UPDATE: I think I get it now. This story and the paper is about one of the original four guys, after he did further training at home then lab, then home then lab again. Am I correct?

    That's what I was thinking because if it takes that long (I don't think it was 9 years, was it?) just to move your legs voluntarily but not walk, I'm much more interested in the BBS which they noticed when they studied it originally. But I hope to hear other people's interpretations. I would like to be wrong in this case.

    When you say implants them overseas, do you mean he is implementing them for paying customers in countries where the regulations allow?

    I can imagine what your view on this would be, but its something that I would be interested in until the NRT internal device is available.

    Sorry Niallel, I believe you misunderstand my word meaning of "along" in the sentence. I meant it to be used as "also or additionally".
    1. Dr. Justin Brown has implanted the Medtronic pain device here in the USA for SCI. (I don't know anything about his customers origin or regulations).
    Also or in addition to that...
    2. Others have implanted the Medtronic pain device outside the USA for SCI. (Usually that is sold to customers as part of an unproven stem cell package for large sums of money).

    I think Kate Willette does a great job HERE of explaining the paper.
