The 65-year-old woman is part of the country’s first trial of the smart garment that could represent a breakthrough for stroke patients, reports the BBC.

The NeuroSkin trousers stimulated her paralysed leg using electrodes controlled by AI. She took part in the trial at the Morrello Clinic in Newport, Wales.
