Imagine not being able to walk across the room because your muscles don't work normally. That's what life is like for many people with Parkinson's disease and similar disorders. The conditions cause your muscles to shake and freeze up until putting one foot in front of the other is almost impossible. Researchers at Mayo Clinic have developed a new device that's part of a clinical trial. It's giving some patients the ability to walk again.
