Paralysis treatment on rats proves promising

Lab rats that were once paralyzed are walking and running again because of ongoing research in Switzerland.

The researchers used a robotic harness plus electrical-chemical stimulation on the rats.

Some of the animals began moving voluntarily after a few weeks on the therapy.

The researchers expect to begin clinical trials in human patients within the next two years.
