A research team from DARPA’s Reliable Neural-Interface Technology (RE-NET) program has created a new implantable brain neural-recording device that can help paralyzed people move again. This novel device can be implanted into the brain and enable direct recording from neurons! Great advantage of the new technology is that the neural-recording device is installed into the brain through blood vessels, reducing the risks of classical invasive surgery and brain trauma.

The new implant enable direct recording from brain neurons and transmitting signals directly to the control unit of external exoskeleton. Thanks to this DARPA’s Reliable Neural-Interface technology paralyzed people will be able to move again, mentally controlling the powered exoskeleton. The RE – NET program opens a new futuristic possibilities for the safe use of novel brain-machine interfaces (BMI), which will help people with disabilities and neurological disorders.
