Device brings hope of paralysis recovery

[KMSP Fox 9 & KARE 11, April 08, 2014] Research at the University of Louisville is being heralded as a breakthrough that is bringing hope for patients who suffered spinal cord injuries that cause paralysis because a device is helping them move again.

Although the device is still very much in the experimental phase and no one has used the word cure just yet, at the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute in Golden Valley, part of Allina Health, many patients see it as a potential life-changer.

One such patient is Todd Boser, who was paralyzed in a diving accident 24 years ago.

KARE 11 also visited the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute to report on the same story.
