Research Institution

We anticipate being a supplier of neuroscience research tools to support the community with softening bioelectronics that can wiretap the body’s nervous system to help map the connectome, understand the nervous system and brain and help researchers develop the next generation of tools to combat neurological disorders and problems in healthcare that can be addressed by regulating the nervous system in ways not possible before. Our technology is based on softening shape memory polymer technology that is surgeon friendly upon insertion allowing for easy access to difficult to reach neural targets. Once our materials soften their stiffness is much close to that of tissue and we are trying to validate the hypothesis that this softening can lead to better indications in the lab today and down the road to help human patients.
