Spinal implant allows Parkinson’s patient to walk for miles

Swiss neurosurgeon, professor and co-director of NeuroRestore Jocelyne Bloch (L) and Swiss professor of neuroscience at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and Lausanne University (UNIL) and co-director of NeuroRestore, Gregoire Courtine (R), walk with Marc (C) a French patient suffering from Parkinson’s disease fitted with a new neuroprosthesis during the presentation of a new neuroprosthesis that restores fluid walking in Lausanne, on November 3, 2023. Neuroscientists from Inserm, CNRS and the University of Bordeaux in France, together with Swiss researchers and neurosurgeons (EPFL/CHUV/UNIL), have designed and tested a ‘neuroprosthesis’ designed to correct the walking problems associated with Parkinson’s disease.
