A paralyzed man is using his thoughts to control his arms and hands. Using this system, he is able to regain control over the hands that were previously paralyzed. The system works by decoding his thoughts and moving his limbs accordingly. For example, he thought about moving his arm, and it moved. He wanted to eat a pretzel and was able to do it. He was previously in a bike accident which damaged his spine and he was thus unable to move his arms, as his brain could not send signals to his limbs. This new system is an experimental system called BrainGate 2.
