Second Work of Walk Again Project is Published




A study published in the journal Scientific Reports on September 19 shows that the use of virtual reality, including tactile feedback, has led chronic paraplegic patients to learn to distinguish different terrain types (grass, sand or asphalt) during a virtual walk. In addition, the study shows that the same training allowed patients to incorporate an avatar’s virtual legs as if they were part of their own bodies.
