Abstract

The stentrode is an implanted endovascular stent recording electrode that records brain signals from the motor cortex. Through the use of computer algorithms, the device is intended to translate brain signals to a computer interface that enables patients with paralysis to directly control assistive technologies including computer software, robotic upper limb prostheses, and motorized wheelchairs.
