Spinal implant allows Parkinson’s patient to walk again in world first – video | Society | News Fission

The first patient to receive a spinal implant to treat advanced Parkinson’s disease has described experiencing ‘a rebirth’ after the treatment allowed him to walk again without falling over. Marc, 63, from Bordeaux, France, was diagnosed with the degenerative disease more than 20 years ago and had developed severe mobility problems, including balance impairments and freezing of gait. After receiving the implant, which aims to restore normal signalling to the leg muscles from the spine, he has been able to walk more normally and regained his independence.
