Walk Again scientist

, May 23, 2014

Brazilian neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis works in his robotic laboratory in Sao Paulo. Nicolelis is leading "The Walk Again Project", where a mechanical exoskeleton is able to support a paralyzed person's lower body and responds to wireless commands that come from electrodes placed on the person's scalp or within the brain. The robotic exoskeleton could allow a paraplegic to deliver the first kick of the World Cup in Brazil next month, as part of a project to showcase technology aimed at overcoming paralysis.
