Paralysed men move again with spinal shocks

Four men who were paralysed from the chest down have begun to move parts of their legs again after ground-breaking treatment in the US.

Electrical pulses were used to stimulate the men's spinal cords and they are now able to move their hips, ankles and toes voluntarily.
