Robotic machine helps paraplegics regain body control

August 13, 2016

Researchers in Brazil have found that interacting with robots helps people who have suffered spinal injuries regain some sensation and movement.

Those injured were put through brain training exercises with the help of robotic machines and they felt a slight sensation in the body.

The neuroscientist involved in the research said that the method does not guarantee full recovery but some partial recovery that can improve the lives of paraplegics.
