New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.

dude.

NO BUT THIS IS SO IMPORTANT

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE THOUGHT THEY WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO MOVE ON THEIR OWN WANT EVER AGAIN

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INJURED IN WAR, IN A BAR FIGHT, JUST STANDING THERE BECAUSE LETS FACE IT YOU’RE NEVER SAFE

HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE BORN WITHOUT MOVEMENT IN THEIR LIMBS, WHO WERE NEVER ABLE TO MOVE BY THEMSELVES

HOW MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE SHED TEARS BECAUSE THEY WOULD NEVER WALK AGAIN, WOULD NEVER SIGN, WOULD NEVER DRAW, WOULD NEVER DANCE, WOULD NEVER RUN, WOULD NEVER BE NORMAL

IF THIS TECHNOLOGY IS FURTHERED ALL OF THESE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE HOPE TO WALK AROUND AGAIN

YOU HAVE NO CLUE HOW HAPPY THIS MAKES ME

Next time you go walking around barefoot in the water…

NOPE

No worries, that’s a Bobbit Worm. They live on the ocean floor, and unless you’re able to withstand a ton of pressure, you likely wouldn’t have your toesies nipped off by one since they live deeper than people walk on the ocean floor.

Bobbit Worms are kinda cool. And they were named after Laurena Bobbit, who cut off her abusive husband’s penis and threw it out of her car window as she drove off.

Wait.
