Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher “will remain an invalid for the rest of his life”, said leading medical expert Erich Riederer.
“He will remain an invalid all his life and will always remain dependent on others’ help,” neurology specialist Riederer told independent.
He added that Schumacher will have “permanent” damage and that it will be a ”success“ if he manages to sit up unaided within the next three months and operate an electric wheelchair within six months.
However, awakening from coma was still “positive It is an incredibly positive message when someone wakes up after being in a coma for half a year,” he continued.
“For him it is positive, but also for his family, this is hugely important.”
