Amazing New Spinal Cord Implant Revives Paralyzed Man's Legs. The next time somebody rails against computer enhanced humans, I am going to make them read about these men. All four were paralyzed from the waist down by spinal cord injuries. Electrical implant below the injury have proven to be able to restore movement in the legs, and one of them can lift 100 pounds with a formerly motionless leg. Anybody here who would object to a computer implant in their spinal cord that enabled them to walk again? Didn't think so.
