SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Figure skating requires balance, strength and flexibility.

Now, new technology is helping this skater practice pain- free.

Internal stimulators have been around for years.

But in the past, they had to be replaced about every four years when the battery died.

Now, as Martie Salt reports, a new technology can keep patients out of the OR for decades.

Another benefit is that it is MRI safe.

Older versions are not.
