Brain-Controlled Robotic Arm To Improve Quality Of Life Of The Paralyzed



Brain Controlled, Robotic Arm
Brown University, working with the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, have developed a robotic arm that allows paralyzed patients and patients with missing limbs grab objects in three-dimensional space through a computer-brain interface. The BrainGate neural interface system is a device currently being studied under an Investigational Device Exemption. However, BrainGate already has some impressive result, for example, one of the participants of the investigational study was able to serve herself coffee for the first time in fifteen years, since when she became paralyzed.
