Hi al. i'm new to this forum, and i'm here to help....
Some while ago i was watching in tv that the polish scientists done a very good job. They have implanted some wires directly to the brain. By direct electric stimulation people with Parkinson's, depression and several different problems CAN feel better after battery operated devise is fitted. This is not any fake topic. I really heard that this thing works. I seen 1 man suffering on parkinson's with devise fitted, and he was quite happy. He said that without this devise he is feeling like in "knight armour". This solution is good as long batteries are charged. i've heard that if you switch devise off then you gonna be back in to parkinson's "state". I hope that this info will help somebody. Unfortunately i don't have any links to their website but i'm sure you should be able to find it over polish internet :). good luck
