Sam Schmidt’s Dream is Coming True

Share this blog:

Ever since I had Indy Racing team owner – and quadriplegic — Sam Schmidt on my podcast, I’ve been paying more and more attention to scientific breakthroughs that will give people like Sam the ability to walk again. I’ve seen a few things that have provided hope, but recently I noticed this story from Switzerland that made me think Sam’s vision and goal might finally be here.

Michael Roccati had lost all motion and feeling in his legs after a motorcycle accident. Doctors implanted a series of AI-equipped sensors in his (and in 2 other men’s) spine. The sensors send activity-specific pulses of electricity to his nerves that provide “instructions” to his legs. When stimulated, Michael can stand, walk, use bicycle pedals, and kick his legs in a swimming pool.
