These pictures show Reeve walking on a treadmill using his own legs and muscles despite the fact he was paralyzed from the neck down after a horse riding accident in 1995.

When they return to earth, the body's sensors return to normal.
Using this information researchers designed a harness that helps patients stand and put weight on their legs. It helps the muscles remember what they're supposed to do even though there is a gap in the spinal cord.
