A new spinal implant has been shown to help people with Parkinson’s disease walk without falling. One patient, who used to fall 5-6 times a day, is now able to walk 6 kilometers every Sunday! The implant works by sending electrical stimulation to the spinal cord, which helps to correct “incorrect” signals from the brain. However, it’s still not clear if this treatment will be widely available, as more research is needed.
