Can spinal cord injured people hope to walk again? The meeting between medicine and nanotechnology gives new hope in this direction!

In the framework of the EU-founded project ByAxon, researchers from Spain, Italy, France and Germany are developing a new nanotechnology to couple special magnetic sensors with the spinal cord. The aim is to bypass the injured part of the spine, thus enabling neural re-connection back again.

If successful, this breakthrough technology will give new hope to half million persons that – according to the World Health Organisation – every year start suffering from spinal cord injuries. See the video here.
