In a small study, researchers used a device that stimulates the spinal cord to restore arm and hand mobility in two stroke patients, allowing them to perform daily life activities, such as using a fork to eat a meal. The study, published in Nature Medicine(link is external), was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies®(BRAIN) Initiative.
