The Future: Hope for Paraplegia

Seven years ago, Ian Burkhart was left paraplegic after a diving accident. But by outfitting him with a special electrical sleeve, researchers were able to bypass the damaged neural pathways and connect Ian’s brain directly to his muscles. We speak to Ian, and to his partner in research, Dr. Marcia Bockbrader, an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the Ohio State University, about what their findings mean for Ian and for others like him.
