The system relays thoughts wirelessly to an external robotic device such as an exoskeleton or prosthetic limb. The Stentrode enables patient directed brain control over movement and locomotion.
The Stentrode device is part of the growing field of robotics for human augmentation. By 2025, this sector is forecast to be a $2 trillion industry. 50 million people around the world have impaired mobility and could greatly benefit.
