Narine spent 3 months in a coma and 7 years with no use of her lower limbs due to a tragic car accident that left her with a spinal cord injury and minor traumatic brain injury. Thanks to the combination of stem cells and a revolutionary new epidural electrode stimulation device from Medtronic, Narine is now able to control her legs and support herself. Narine is the first woman to receive this device, the 5th ever, and the first person to undergo this unique stem cell + implant treatment.
