Subjects during research have used BrainGate
to control computer cursors and powered wheelchairs.
Matthew volunteered to be the first human guinea pig to try the implant, called BrainGate
, and believes the technology will eventually help him to walk again.
He co-founded Cyberkinetics, a company making and testing the device known as BrainGate

Company, Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc, Google Inc, Magic Leap Inc, Raytheon Company, Rewalk Robotics Ltd, Samsung Electronics Co.
The patients were part of a clinical trial investigating a device called BrainGate
, developed by Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems Inc.
The company's BrainGate
system uses multiple-needle electrodes connected directly to a computer.
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.
