The electronic implant on the spine to cure chronical pain was tested 15 years ago in France. It didn't work for many reasons, the stopping one was that the interface beetween the nerve and the implant get rapidly degraded. The system works a few weeks then becomes more a pain than a relief.

giant cells form around anyhing not a natural to the body. The bioloy works against you by creating what in effect is scar tissue around your materials.

All the artificial methods like this will not eventually work. Best healing is done by body itself provided the proper nutrients/herbs are taken and toxins are removed. "You are what you eat" is the key and most diseases can't be cured without diet and lifestyle change as that's the root cause of most diseases.

@ boblespam, these guys might have got a new material for the interface may be? @androidfan what u say is partially true. Nevertheless there is scope(commercial atleast) for this kind of systems.
