Cyberkinetics' product development pipeline includes: Andara[TM] OFS[TM] Therapy for acute spinal cord injury, an investigative device designed to stimulate nerve repair and restore sensation and motor function; the BrainGate System, an investigative device designed to provide communication and control of a computer, assistive devices, and, ultimately, limb movement; and a pilot program in the detection and prediction of seizures due to epilepsy.
He skilfully combines the qualities of a scientist, engineer and manager, for example by coordinating the multidisciplinary team behind the ground-breaking prototype neural interface known as BrainGate.
Cyberkinetics' product development pipeline includes: the Andara[TM] Oscillating Field Stimulator (OFS[TM]) Device, an investigative device designed to stimulate regeneration of the neural tissue surrounding the spinal cord and to restore sensation and motor function; the BrainGate System, an investigative device designed to provide communication and control of a computer, assistive devices, and, ultimately, limb movement; and the NeuroPort[TM] System, which is cleared to market in the United States, a neural monitor designed for acute inpatient applications and labeled for temporary (less than 30 days) recording and monitoring of brain electrical activity.
