Objective

Our goal is the introduction of a new generation complex for neuro-rehabilitation, based on innovative technology and equipment developed in Russia.

The solution is intended for patients with post traumatic brain injury and post stroke patients. Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability: according to the World Health Organization, 15 million people suffer stroke worldwide each year. Of these, 5 million are permanently disabled. In the EU countries, the annual economic cost of stroke is an estimated €27 billion; in the United States is $34 billion each year.

However, modern medical and technical solutions have extremely limited potential for restoring or replacing lost motor abilities. In this regard, development of efficient non-invasive solutions for rehabilitation, restoring motor skills, is a priority direction of technology evolution in the world. In particular, it is one of the objective of the roadmap of the National Technological Initiative of Russia.

Our vision and long-term goal is to provide the possibility of rehabilitation of patients both in clinic and at home, after discharge from hospital. This will meet the demand of patients in long-term effective neuro-rehabilitation and shorten hospital stay.

Product

The hardware-software complex of neuro-rehabilitation based on brain-computer interface

  • The basic technology — is the authors’ method of detection of motor commands generated by the brain based on EEG signal decoding using advanced methods of artificial intelligence.
  • The basic equipment is a portable wireless electroencephalograph manufactured by Mitsar Ltd.(St. Petersburg), our strategic partner.

The rehabilitation complex is interactive and mobile, and operates in real time.

The development of this product is based on the authors’ technology and best practices for EEG decoding of both large and fine imaginary movements in real time.
