Translating arm and hand movement intentions into action
The Wyss Center team, together with local and international partners, are developing high-performance AI-algorithms to decode complex brain signals collected with a new type of soft and flexible electrodes, developed by Neurosoft Bioelectronics, to control a lightweight soft wearable exosuit, developed by KETI, to support arms and hands movements in real time.
Synapsuit is a collaborative project designed to develop groundbreaking neural bridging technologies for patients with spinal cord injuries and stroke to regain control of their arms and hands while accelerating neuro-rehabilitation methods. Simply said, the team is developing technology to move people’s hand and arms as they intend.
This initiative is a collaborative project supported by Innosuisse and KIAT grants and benefits from the resources and leadership of the Lighthouse Partnership for AI-guided neuromodulation. Partners involved in this project are Korea Electronics Technology Institute, Neurosoft Bioelectronics, Jang Eun FnC, Professors Grégoire Courtine and Jocelyne Bloch of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV).
