Exoskeletons that help those with spinal cord injuries to walk may help to improve bowel function.
A new brain-computer interface could help thousands of people with neurodegenerative disorders and spinal cord injuries the ability to regain communication skills. The BCI, in combination with a machine learning algorithm, can generate words on a scree…
The BrainGate brain-machine interface is able to transmit signals from a single neuron resolution with full broadband fidelity without physically tethering the user to a decoding system.
A novel flexible, breathable magnetic skin allows people with quadriplegia to move around their environment with greater ease.
Protein hyper-interleukin-6, a “designer protein” that has to be produced via genetic engineering, enabled a paralyzed mouse to walk again.
A tiny neural implant dubbed the Stentrode, allows people with upper limb paralysis to regain motor function. The device wirelessly restores the transmission of brain impulses.
Combining machine learning with neuroprosthetic technology allowed a patient with paralysis to learn to control a computer cursor by utilizing brain activity without extensive daily retraining.
An implantable, wireless brain-computer interface device can help improve the functional independence of those living with paralysis, a new study reports.
