London: An electronic device developed by scientists in Germany has enabled four paralysed people to walk again.The device, made by German firm Ottobock, is designed for victims of stroke or brain damage whose nervous systems have been impaired. A patient fitted with the device in July had recovered sufficiently to take part in the Torch relay through London earlier this week, a newspaper reported.The woman, in her 20s, had suffered a brain injury in a road accident and could not walk. Now her life has been transformed by a technology that has been available on the Continent for several years.“It is amazing to see patients who had a useless withered limb walking again almost normally,” Orthopaedic consultant Dr Michael Jauch, leading the programme, said.
