Brain Implants Case Study

Brain Implants have the capability to restore movement to the body by interrupting brain signals and replacing them with their own.

In 2015, Nathan Copeland was implanted with one of the first iterations of brain implants with four electrodes connected to his brain. In 2005, Copeland was paralysed in a car accident, however, this brain implants allowed him to regain feeling in his fingertips and control robotic arm using his brain.

The innovation of brain implants opens a new world of possibilities for people suffering from diseases and medical conditions.
