Unlike current brain machine interfaces that focus on deciphering neural circuitries in the cortex to communicate with synthetic arms, we are developing a neural interface that will connect the spinal cord with machines.
Our implant consists of a closed-loop interface that turns complex neural data into a simple string of ones and zeros, much like a black and white camera for the brain.
We introduced three-dimensional nano-architecture to the sensing and stimulating electrodes to achieve faster, more precise, and vastly multiplexed transfer of information.

This paradigm shift in both location and signal extraction allows our device to emulate the “all or none” biological signals by turning action potentials into simpler data that will be relayed past the injured site to the
healthy section of the spinal cord in order to provide a real-time seamless physical experience for the patient.

In addition to not needing training or calibration, our device will be dramatically smaller and less invasive than current cortical devices.

Implantation in the spinal cord leads to less tissue damage and is more amenable to full body brain interfacing

We are building a fast and dynamic black and white map of brain activity by taking advantage of the thalamus - a structure in the brain which filters and routes cortical signals - to a determined map therefore making information interpretation much simpler
We are turning this information into a 1-bit real-time image that can be used to provide patients with both motion and sensation abilities
