With the Neuralink rival ‘Stentrode’ Brain Chip, paralyzed patients can control...

California start-up Synchron recently published its study and results on the success of the “Stentrode” brain chips implanted in paralyzed and disabled patients to help them control and use computers with their minds. The new neural chip uses a revolutionary method to implant the device in the body’s bloodstream, which corresponds directly to the human brain.

The startup company is primarily focused on providing disabled and paralyzed patients with a new way to control devices such as computers without moving or physical manipulation. Synchron Med’s latest company proves that its technology is revolutionary and helpful for those affected by accidents and illnesses like ALS or Lou Gehrig.

According to Unilad.co. Synchron recently published the results of its study and results showing the success of the Stentrode chip that helped disabled patients mentally control a computer. The chip promises to help people perform computer tasks with their brains, especially for people with disabilities.

Patients diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as “ALS” or “Lou Gehrig’s disease,” are the primary target of the brain chip, which promises to help the computer use and function. According to May-KlinikALS is a disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, which makes it difficult for a person to control muscles.

The brain chip also helps with other physical disabilities and cases of paralysis such as cerebral palsy and accidents. According to the Rehab Pub, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the Stentrode chip as a “breakthrough device” for brain implants without the strenuous and risky open brain surgery.

A 60 year old man from Australia who has reckless ALS is one of the proponents of Stentrode technology. The man was deployed with the Stentrode chip in April 2020 and admitted that it enabled him to send faster emails in minutes.

How does Stentrode work?

The Stentrode brain chip is a minimal brain chip that does not require risky open brain surgery to insert and use. The implantation would be through a blood vessel insertion into a person’s brain. The chip would then grow and expand in the blood vessel to secure itself to the walls that promise not to obstruct blood flow.

Synchron’s Stentrode is a sensor chip that mainly relies on the body’s blood flow to interpret commands from the human brain. The chip is placed directly on one of the brain’s blood vessels in order to record its neural signals, which are soon interpreted as computer commands.

The brain chip precisely records the neural activity associated with the mobility and movement of the human body. The interpreted signal would then mimic the physical function of a computer command, such as clicking the mouse or keyboard.

An artificial intelligence (AI) transmitter would then receive the interpretation of the stentrode and forward its command to its coupled computer. Each device is attached to a patient’s chest to ensure it is always with them and available in times of need.

The package from Stentrode contains the brain and blood vessel chip, a “BrainPort” that interprets the commands of the chip, and an application called “BrainOS” to determine the function of the chip and adjust settings. Synchron’s neural chip company outperformed Neuralink in terms of human testing and actual control of external devices.
