How it Works

How it wokrs 1 2 3
How it works 1
1
The stentrode™ is an endovascular implant, placed in a vein alongside the motor cortex which generates any signal related to movement.
How it works 2
2
A receiver device implanted in the chest transmits the neural signals to a decoder.
How it Works 3
3
A machine learning algorithm translates those signals into specific digital commands.

Key System Feature Designs

Invisible

Fully implanted components with no visible effects on the body.

Natural

Patterns of thinking are translated directly into digital commands to control any device.

Robust

Designed to be a simple-to-use and dependable technology that works immediately.

Personalized

Designed to be fully customizable to patient needs and adapt over time.

The Components

brain.io™ gives patients access to fundamental human needs. Each device replaces a key function of an intact motor neuron in order to record, transmit, translate, and act on brain signals.

The array and transmitter

the node

The node consists of the stentrode™ and our internal receiver-transmitter unit that is placed in the chest under the skin. It records brain signals from the motor cortex and provides wireless transmission of raw data to the external devices.

The receiver and decoder

axon

The axon consists of our external receiver-transmitter unit and our signal control unit. The axon wirelessly detects raw brain signals from the node and translates them into standardized digital commands that can be recognized by any Bluetooth device.

The Platform

brain.io™

Our end user software, brain.io™, is a hands-free, thought-controlled platform that uses translated brain signals to restore motor capabilities to achieve digital freedom.
