New technique shows good results for paralysis victims story image
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new technique is showing promising results in helping those with paralysis.

It's an implanted device that sends electrical stimulation to the spine.

Dustin Shillcox is one of four patients in the new study, and when the stimulator is turned off, Dustin can't even sit up, because muscles in his torso don't work.

But if you turn it on, Dustin can sit up without any support at all and move his leg.

It's not the first time electrical stimulation has helped paralyzed patients, but experts say the technique may become another tool in the toolbox.
