Potential cures for paralysed victims.

There was a segment on a BBC One programme just now about how people are developing Exo-skeleton's for people with difficult walking, or those just unable to. The idea behind it is that it makes the person a lot stronger which means that they can use out of body strength to walk. It also makes it a lot easier as the exo-skeleton protects the legs.

Another example is one that was featured on the BBC News and Daily Mail today;

Not sure if the video is viewable in the US and such but they remove cells from the nose and inject them into the spine which seems to heal the nerve's and allow movement again.
