    After more than a decade of paralysis from the neck down, the one thing Jan Scheuemann wanted to be able to do was feed herself a bar of chocolate.

    Now using a brain-controlled robotic arm at the University of Pittsburgh, Jan has been able to do just that.

    Doctors were blown away by the level of skill she achieved with the arm, controlled by her thoughts alone.
