C110 The dawn of brain computer interfaces
MNDA SYMPOSIUM PERTH DEC19 PRESENTATIONS
Session 10 JOINT CLOSING SESSION
Background: After 7 years of preclinical development, we have received approval to conduct the first in human implantation of the stentrode brain computer interface system in patients with severe paralysis. The device is a stent electrode array implanted in the superior sagittal sinus immediately adjacent to the parasagittal primary motor cortex bilaterally. The goal of the study is to demonstrate the safety profile of the implantation procedure. The secondary efficacy endpoints include characterization of the signal profile of the system and capacity to decode beta and gamma synch and desynchronization into discrete output switches that can drive communication software. Data will be late breaking at the time of the conference.
