    You often hear of people making miraculous recoveries. A lot of these people are incomplete and as the weeks to go by, they gain movement back. I'm not saying that is the case here, you just have to be open-minded.

    Hi Eric, the latest info. is in the thread Cljanney posted but here's more: http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showpost.php?p=120566

    Dr. Borgens is the researcher behind the Cyberkinetics OFS device. The OFS trial mentioned in the article was geared towards acutes. The OFS Plus system trial, which will focus on chronics, is scheduled to start in 2007.

    Those are the kind of stories I like to hear

    He was one of the people who participated in Dr. Borgens trial for acute injuries, the only concerning thing about this is the modest gains in motor control the patients had, the good news was a lot of them got back quite a bit of sensation.
