Under the leadership of CorTec, an interdisciplinary consortium comprising the Universities of Ulm and Freiburg, the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems as well as the University Medical Centers of Freiburg and Tübingen will work towards clinical applications of CorTec’s Brain Interchange system.
Hard- and software development in the universities and within the company will be complemented by preclinical research and two pilot clinical studies. At the University Medical Center of Freiburg, the clinical study will focus on support of communication by paralyzed patients. At the Medical Center of Tübingen, applications for stroke rehabilitation will be explored.
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is supporting the project within the program “KMU innovative: Medizintechnik” (Innovative SME: Medical Technology) for a period of three years with a total funding of approximately five million Euro.
