    I was born with stroke side effects so this is pretty incredible to watch I wish they had this kind of stuff when I was a little kid

    Arron and all the medical staff are heroes!

  7. Heather Metz on December 21, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    Thank you Aaron (the pioneer).

  8. Alan Marston on December 21, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    If you will not put your program on full play then I can care not for you.

    Thank you Aaron for being willing to be the first. That is exactly what a pioneer does, he charts the way for others.

    I had a stroke at 40. I was perfectly healthy. It was never discovered why it happened. It really can happen to anyone.

  12. Susie Smith on December 21, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    Awesome!

  13. Rushton Dobbins on December 21, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Interesting to see the other institutions working on this technology. I had only ever heard of Elon Musks’ Nueralink technology and company.

    Strokes are worse than heart attacks. A stroke is basically a "brain attack." Your heart is a motor. But your brain is a complex computer. It’s much easier to fix an engine (not cheaper, but easier), than a corrupted harddrive.

    I had a stroke last year and I’m only 21. When it first happened, I couldn’t even walk. I had to be carried into the hospital.. my left side is damaged, but I’m getting a lot better.

  16. Jane Hardy on December 21, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    Why just a three month trial? How cruel. What are they going to do, operate again and take the electrodes out? Isn’t that at least as risky as putting them in?

  17. Scott Hiers on December 21, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    They turned this dude into Levius!

  18. NAM on December 21, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    Thank You Aaron! The Occupational Therapy Side of me was, automatically, listing a slew of Activities that I would be attempting with use of this Device! Meanwhile…get your Therapist to modify your Left Bicycle grip to help you with your Bike Riding!….. BTW…I hate when Dr’s use the word "Never"!

  19. Alex Thompson on December 21, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    Just because you had a stroke doesn’t mean you have to dress like a slob on national television.

  20. Linda Guida on December 21, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    My brother at 59 suffered a Massive Stroke, has Aphasia, right side paralyzed.

  21. Renee Moreno on December 21, 2021 at 12:36 pm

    Incredible…keep moving forward with this medical technology.

  22. North Southport on December 21, 2021 at 12:36 pm

    Why would anyone dislike this video?

  23. Diane Young on December 21, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    Thank you Aaron.

  24. A3VAL_ on December 21, 2021 at 12:42 pm

    Gifted person 💓

  25. Karen NO on December 21, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    Incredible!! Huge step in stroke recovery!

  26. Cher Edney Pharis on December 21, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    I hope they can give back. Balance issues I have for stroke victims,and Parkinson’s
    That would be great!

  27. RozSpeaks on December 21, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    Amazing 🙌🏽

  28. livnand learning on December 21, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    When you put their technology in your body, that technology company OWNS YOU
    LOOK IT UP.

    Once a woman brings a child into the world,her life is never truly her own anymore. Getting that call that your child may be sick or injured at any hour of the day or night must bring countless sleepless nights😔 I’m so glad her son is doing better and maybe she can catch up on some of that sleep 🙏👍

  30. crazy daizy preps like crazy on December 21, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    i feel for him i had a stroke at 36 i havent been right since

  31. Michele Medina on December 21, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    Aaron good luck, you can do it!!! Godspeed!!!

  32. Vicki Windman on December 21, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    My son had a stroke when he was nine years old. Like Aaron we had no answers why. He is now 34 years old. He has left sided weakness… but wish this was available for him.

  33. Larry Southern on December 21, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    The human brain is incredible and highly complex….God bless these pioneers in this profession….
