Michael Schumacher Family In Talks With Micro Chip Docs

Michael Schumacher Family In Talks With Micro Chip Docs

Injured Formula One driver Michael Schumacher is to get a microchip implanted into his brain that will help him on the road to recovery, according to Croatian media.

The pioneering work by Croatian neurosurgeons has already shown remarkable results and they have now reportedly been invited to try and help the German Formula 1 ace.

The revolutionary microchip implanting technique was developed by Croatian doctors Darko Chudy and Vedran Deletis who, according to the news report, plan to implant a microchip into the brain of the Formula 1 star.

It believed that the microchip will help him to walk and talk again after his extended period in a coma.

The family of Schumacher made the initial contact with the two doctors from the Croatian capital Zagreb after reports in specialist publications indicating that their technique had already helped other patients.

The medics confirmed when questioned that there had been contact but declined to discuss the case in detail.

The technique works by carrying out a deep stimulation of the brain and so far the two doctors have achieved successful results with four patients suffering from a similar condition.

"We've had a case with Croat schoolboy and he started to walk after two months," Doctor Darko Chudy confirmed in a short interview with local media.

But he added that he cannot talk about the Schumacher case, other than to confirm that there had been contact and it is believed his technique would be able to help.
