EPFL researchers have combined low-power chip design, machine learning algorithms, and soft implantable electrodes to produce a neural interface that can identify and suppress symptoms of various neurological disorders.
Hydrogel-based scaffolds could be used for better brain-computer interfaces
Meet the two scientists behind the IpsiHand, an innovation approved by the FDA in 2021 that is helping patients debilitated by stroke move again
Article #8 of Improving Lives with Digital Healthcare Series: Advancements in electronics have transformed the healthcare sector. The focus is on improving the experiences of users by utilizing cutting-edge technologies like advanced drug delivery systems, wearables, surgical robots, and more.
Article #4 of Improving Lives with Digital Healthcare Series: Transferring information directly between the human brain and a computer can unlock the possibilities of using machines as extended parts of the human body.
MagTrack Technology Opens Doors for Independent Operation of Smartphones, Computers, and Other Devices for Wheelchair Users
Clinical work begins with MagTrack, a cutting-edge assistive technology that enables power wheelchair users to control their connected devices and drive their power wheelchairs using an alternative, multimodal controller.
In this episode, we talk about an initiative from EPFL to allow those with spinal cord injuries to control robots for help with day-to-day tasks and MIT’s bug robots that are taking big strides for small scaled bio-robotics.
Two EPFL research groups teamed up to develop a machine-learning program that can be connected to a human brain and used to command a robot. The program adjusts the robot’s movements based on electrical signals from the brain.
When they first met at the TUM Think.Make.Start young entrepreneurs program, Vladislav Samoilov and Philipp Zent quickly found common ground: they are both passionate gamers. And now they are also entrepreneurs. Their startup – called Brainsight – could revolutionize the world of playtesting.
A novel brain-computer interface will allow the severely paralyzed to send email messages and perform daily tasks like online shopping and banking with their minds.
Joseph DelPreto is a PhD candidate at MIT CSAIL working on making human-robot interfaces more accessible and effective by using wearable sensors and biosignals.
The new “mindwriting” technology enables a man with immobilized limbs to create text messages nearly as fast as people who use their thumbs to tap words onto smartphone keyboards.
Innovative multidisciplinary research at Washington University led to development of 'breakthrough' device
In this episode, we talk about how Neuralink wants to put chips in people’s heads, how Alauda wants to bring about the age of flying electric vehicles with their Airspeeder, and a joint effort to consider the carbon footprint of high performance processors.
