Sheesh, people- why leap to silly applications when critical
quality-of-life repairs are the first rational use? I'd love to get my
crushed T12 vertebra and herniated L5 disc repaired... I live with
chronic pain and restricted activity, I'm NOT looking for the latest
kool modz.

Then I could start skydiving again and screw myself up some more :)

And then get *that* damage fixed in turn (double :)
