During a live stream with Elon Musk on Twitter/X, Noland Arbaugh stated that he is fully paralyzed below the shoulders and has lost any feeling in his body, legs, and arms. About 8 years ago, he suffered a severe diving accident that dislocated his C4 and C5 spinal vertebrae.

During the live stream, he also talked about his procedure, stating-

“The surgery was super easy. I literally was released from the hospital a day later. I have no cognitive impairments. I had basically given up playing that game, you all (Neuralink) gave me the ability to do that again and played for 8 hours straight.”

Last month, Reuters reported that U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspectors found some issues with the quality controls and record-keeping for animal experiments at Elon Musk’s Neuralink, less than a month after the company announced it had been cleared to test its brain implants in humans. However, Neuralink has not responded to the report.
