The First Portable BCI Study for Paralyzed Patients

Implantable Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) tech has offered people with spinal cord injuries and other neurological disorders the potential to restore abilities since 2004. Comprised of miniaturized electronics, hardware, and machine learning software – BCIs decode and translate brain signals into digital commands, providing people with paralysis the ability to control external devices such as computer cursors or robotic arms.

Nathan Copeland has been using his at-home MoveAgain system since 2020. “I think in-home devices are the next essential step for getting BCI technology into the brains of the people that could have their lives improved by it. Whether it’s to draw cute cats, play video games, or as a primary tool for communication, the capability of using the system in the real world beyond the confines of a lab building will start changing lives and how people think about BCI,” says Copeland.

BCI trials may soon be more accessible to a greater population of candidates living with paralysis, per a new partnership agreement between Blackrock Neurotech and the University of Pittsburgh’s Rehab Neural Engineering Labs (Pitt RNEL).
