Interesting. It would be great to help the paralyzed or us amputees to walk, but I would be a bit worried about the animal testing. 
Where ever I go, I'll always have one foot in Ireland   /   I'm not a complete fool. Some parts are missing.

Hi Steve

I have 2 nieces who both work for large companies that do biomedical research. I have asked them about animal cruelty and they both assure me that they are required to be very careful about the care of the animals to avoid discomfort to the animals. I think that it is probably the only way to make some medical advances and assure human safety.
Be Well
