    From Rats to Humans: Project NEUWalk Closer to Clinical Trials

    24.09.14 - Mediacom A completely paralyzed rat can be made to walk over obstacles and up stairs by electrically stimulating the severed part of the spinal cord. The EPFL scientists discovered how to control in real-time how the rat moves forward and how high it lifts its limbs. A new lab at the CHUV will extend this technology to human patients as early as next summer using an innovative Gait Platform which was built with the support of the Valais canton and the SUVA, bringing the European Project NEUWalk closer to clinical trials.
