'Man on the Moon' moment - the year's big breakthroughs

"https://www.bbc.com/news/health-50813226"

It has been a remarkable year of promise in medical science - from inventing ways of treating the untreatable to reversing paralysis and keeping the brain alive after death.

"It was like [being the] first man on the Moon," said 30-year-old Thibault.

He was describing the moment he was able to take his first steps since being paralysed in a fall two years ago.

He can now move all four of his paralysed limbs with a mind-controlled exoskeleton suit.

His movements, particularly walking, are far from perfect and the robo-suit is being used only in the lab.


But researchers say the approach could one day improve patients' quality of life.
