High volume neural interfaces and real time decoding.

Paradromics is developing next-generation brain-machine interfaces that will increase the data transmission rate between brains and computers. This will enable better treatment options for neurodegenerative diseases and advanced neuroprosthetic limbs for those suffering from amputation or spinal cord injuries.

Blindness, deafness, paralysis, ALS, and amputation – all of these conditions fundamentally involve the breakdown of communication between the brain and the outside world.

So what if patients with connectivity disorders could interact with the world through a direct computer link?

In an instant, an entire ecosystem of digital devices and online services would be available to compensate for a patient’s loss of biological connectivity. A blind person could see through the aid of a digital camera. A paralysed person could order groceries, receive them at the door, and then invite a friend for dinner, all without moving a muscle.

Paradromics was founded in 2015 by a team of engineers and neuroscientists, received early support from both NIH and DARPA, and is currently backed by venture capital.
