Science, for the win!

Four years ago, a tragic diving accident paralyzed Ian Burkhart, leaving him unable to move his arms or legs. Until this week…

The 23-year-old quadriplegic patient has been working with surgeons at the Ohio State University and researchers at the Battelle Memorial Institute on a new technology called Neurobridge.

Using an implant inserted and connected to Ian’s brain, he’s able to move his arm and hand using his own thoughts for the first time since his accident!

Incredible!

But how does it work??
