Description
“We can rebuild him. We have the technology.” What was science fiction in the 1970s television series “The Six Million Dollar Man” may be about to become very real.

Scientists have developed implantable technology that could allow people with spinal injuries to move their muscles using their own brainwaves.

Neuroprosthetics developed at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) are now on the fast track to move from the laboratory into manufacturing and human testing.

If all goes well, the devices could be on the market in 2017.
