BrainQ, recently established startup is planning to utilize the brain-computer interface (BCI) techniques to develop life-saving mind reader tech. This technology would then be attempted to cure spinal cord injuries as well as stroke.
Better Days to Exist For Spinal Cord and Stroke Ailments
Spinal injuries and strokes affect a significant population all over the world. This is mainly due to unhealthy lifestyle, binge eating, smoking, and other similar factors. The Israel-based startup operating in the field of neurotech promises to attempt to search for a solution to these issues with the help BCI. As per reports, the exact pathway that would describe the use of the computer chips is still not very clear. BrainQ is planning to take on other companies that deal with BCI systems such as Brian Johnson’s Kernel Elon Musk’s Neuralink.
The only clear approach that has been identified until now involves inserting the chips in human brains, in order to connect the thought processes to a computer. This might seem farfetched in current times, but essentially it is similar to connecting two computers together. BrainQ plans to use non-surgically embedded EEG machines in order to gain data, which can be further be used for treating stroke and spinal cord ailments.
However, a lot of research still needs to be done when it comes down to using these devices, as we ourselves haven’t exactly understood how our brain works. Even the slightest mistake may cause irreparable damage to our brain cells. This thought is being kept in mind by the startup and is highly considered while carrying out even the smallest of tests.
Considerable competition is expected to affect BrainQ, as there are many others who are expected to focus on the same subject in their own ways. Some are even going beyond strokes and spinal cord injuries, and instead focusing on seizures and other nerve-based disorders.
