High Performing Algorithm To Translate Paralyzed Patients’ Thoughts Into Real-Time Prosthetic Movements
Blackrock Neurotech to enhance thought-to-prosthetic movement for paralyzed BCI patients by licensing proprietary algorithm from Columbia University.
SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Blackrock Neurotech, the leader in brain-computer interface (BCI) technology, has signed an exclusive license for Columbia University’s neural decoder MINT. The license comes on the heels of Blackrock’s recent announcement to commercialize its MoveAgain platform, an implantable brain-computer interface that restores function in patients impaired by spinal cord injuries and disabilities caused by ALS and paralysis. MINT, which recently demonstrated exemplary performance in the EvalAI competition, will be integrated into the MoveAgain software, enabling patients’ thoughts to be translated more optimally into prosthetic movements.
