A major medical breakthrough to tell you about for paralyze patients this new technology that actually makes it possible for people with spinal cord injuries to walk again.
Many like this man -- -- -- -- who was paralyzed from the cards.
I have backbone feeding -- seeing people talk it down.
There are high level there would sit and -- get out you need to commence the whole.
How I was trying -- -- -- -- because.
It is what it is like big bundle of joy.
And all the benefits Coleman.
Osaka remarkable miracle for Manning and others like doctor Siegel we say they interviewing him -- tell us about his story.
This is the second time in two months I travel the Mount Sinai Medical Center.
To interview someone about a robot I'm interested in the white -- packets -- that the and this this is an amazing event and this is called back so -- -- -- host Ellen and -- 48 pounds it was originally developed by the army to carry things.
Vast distances like 200 pounds but we're using -- for paralyzed patients now.
It's got a battery that lasts about an hour and a half you recharge it is a computer console on the back but the wait is not on the patient the ways he -- the apparatus itself.
So he doesn't feel anything.
They will look and see how he walks before he were parrot was paralyzed and Manny was paralyzed from the -- down in a car accident.
And this has motors and it on the hips on the knees and literally with a hand operated console.
He can walk again and he feels so different.
I'm Eric this is so good for his overall health as an internist I can tell you it is so good.
For every aspect of his health to the upper right psychologically metabolic -- physically will be increases risk of diseases wounds.
Now this is part of robotics and doctor Greg -- who's the head of the division -- -- on I said we shouldn't be looking so much of growth factors and chemicals to get people to walk again let's look at technology lets look at robotics.
We've had this technology he thinks that we're gonna be able to initiated -- she -- thoughts.
And I talked a doctorate in -- About the head of robotics amounts on a doctor somebody who doctorate in arson -- a star because of what he does with a -- Vinci -- these things are related.
Because if you see David operate with a robotic arms you see the same kind of -- customize it's it's unbelievable I mean -- at this is so important for people -- paralyzed.
Well mark is very -- he's been inopportune moment and it didn't pick older robotics obviously has changed.
They -- you view things the surgery that we used to do to open surgery.
Involve the big incision a lot of blood -- couldn't see now robotic prostate surgery has really revolutionized to see people coming to our operating room for an hour surgery.
Go home the next day.
But exactly the point that mark brought -- this is psychologically.
Uplifting for somebody to even stand straight.
As opposed to always looking up it changes the whole view of life.
-- you know this is a time that we should really thank and appreciate the simple things in life walking eating etc.
much -- how many people have been -- can get this now it's a good point mount -- actually has been a huge supporter of this.
They're investing tons of money in research science and technology which is a big thing and it's great to be part of this cost about a 10440000.
It's just beginning and it was that two -- of thirteen.
Possibly this -- calm.
To people's home but it's the beginning of the Great Recession any best candy I can go out of the lab for example in the hospital -- get out on the street -- is saying yes because when the computer -- knows more about this but the computer actually memorize -- some of your movements.
And -- you can control based on so the remote controls and you have.
You -- walking you move forward any kind of gives -- the -- to use your arms to move there now studying it there but it's gonna go home.
If people can afford it in just two years.
Unassisted -- inspirational miracle what Matt modern medicine can do now Manning our hats off to you and took it all those who.
Suffer from this and did you all the rest stereotype medical it's just the press did developments are believed we hope.
