Researchers have had success doing brain implants on those who are paralyzed.  Brain activity is collected by sensors in the brain allowing a computer to convert the brain activity into a mouse click or zoom in on something on the computer screen.  There are an estimated 500K people suffering from spinal-cord injuries or who have partial mobility due to suffering a stroke.  And with COVID-19 causing some serious side effects even after an apparent recovery, new uses may be found for this type of surgery.
