“Scientists are also looking into developing bionic devices to help treat Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy, among other conditions that involve tremors. Moreover, they are working on a “bionic spinal cord” that can have paraplegics controlling robotic arms in five years.
Even if a number of the studies are expected to be completed within the decade, none of the treatments, vaccines, and technologies can be expected to be available in the near future for all medical facilities and hospitals, much less private practices. Availability might be influenced by factors as simple as distribution, or by ones as decisive as cost. Nonetheless, having all these cutting-edge resources should not remain a pipe dream for both patients and medical practitioners alike.”
