A paralyzed Dutch man was able to walk again using what kind of new technology?
A Robotic leg braces
B Spinal replacement
C Thought-controlled implants
The correct answer is Thought-controlled implants.
See The Reason for That answer below:
A groundbreaking thought-controlled brain implant has enabled a paralyzed man named Gert-Jan Oksam to walk again. Twelve years ago, Oksam was in a biking accident that left him unable to use his legs due to a spinal cord injury.
Through the use of small implants in his back and brain, which rehabilitated the connection between his legs and mind, he has regained the ability to walk independently for about 100 meters (over 300 feet). This achievement is made possible by a brain-to-computer interface (BCI) technology, which allows Oksam to stimulate his own spine through thought and retrain himself to walk again. The BCI system acts as a “digital bridge” between the brain and spine, with electrodes implanted in Oksam’s skull sending his thoughts to an antenna headset he wears, which then processes the commands through a backpack he carries.
The intentions are eventually translated into movement through spinal stimulation. The BCI system provides smoother and more natural movements compared to other external spinal cord stimulation methods. While the system requires brain surgery and extensive training, the results are promising, and further research is being conducted to implant similar systems in other patients with spinal cord injuries and hand/arm impairments.
