    Bad idea. Rather than fix his actual spine by for example, removing the lesion (scar tissue) in the spine so the nerves will reconnect since the nerves are already preprogrammed like this already know how and it's already been shown now within the last decade or more they are getting able to restore function since the spinal cord is the wiring harness for many of your bodily functions, so rather than spend money WISELY, it's prodigiously wasted to cater to the people who obviously didn't do more diligent care to see what is the actual better option to choose. Rather than restore the ability to not have to depend on a machine or wheelchair etc to be able to be mostly independent, the paralyzed man or woman still has to depend on a machine thus keeping the body in a debilitated state, since walking with an exo-skeleton does nothing in helping a paralyzed victim build muscle or anything of the sort for them who have lost voluntary control of mostly everything below their neck or anywhere below that into the thoracic area. Their way of supposedly 'fixing' this problem is equivalent to when your car needs oil, you use a big black marker to blacken out the oil light on the display so you don't have to see the oil light, while your car will die very soon after that.

    alright, this is good but now they need to make something that is more smaller and easier to hide. lastly they need to figure out how to make the walking more natural looking, if possible.

    Think of this: Life is by no means fair. I almost feel fuilty being perfectly healthy and it is nearly humbling to see a paralyzedperson happier than me at times.
