Minimally invasive brain-controlled communication and navigation

Project Details


MND has the devastating consequence of limiting people's independence and communication. Fortunately, for many, the portion of the brain responsible for movement remains intact and enables is to utilize signals to control assistive devices. However, due to invasive surgical methods, translation of existing technology has not progressed to clinical application. Our technology (STENTRODEtm) is the only existing method of extracting brain signals from within a blood vessel, which mitigates the risks associated with open-brain surgery. Having demonstrated that a Stentrode can record clinically relevant brain signals we now aim to translate this into early feasibility in a world-first human trial.
