PROTOTYPE MANUFACTURING OF NEXT GENERATION MINIMALLY-INVASIVE BRAIN COMPUTER INTERFACE
Grant number: 1075117 | Funding period: 2014 - 2016
Persons affected by quadriplegia and hemiplegia from stroke and spinal cord injury have few treatment options. Brain Machine Interfaces reconnect brain to a prosthetic limb, bypassing damaged nervous system. Our group has developed a BMI that can be implanted minimally-invasively, inside a blood vessel in the brain. We propose to manufacture a world-first device for a human clinical trial pilot study. The aim is to restore mechanical control over the physical environment for a paralysed patient.
