Brain-computer interface for neurorehabilitation

Center for bioelectric interfaces launches the joint project with the ExoAtlet company to develop a brain-computer interface for the rehabilitation of patients with locomotor disorders of the lower limbs. More effective complex therapy will be possible as a result of combining the medical exoskeleton (ExoAtlet, https://www.exoatlet.com/ru) with the recording of the patient's electroencephalogram (EEG). Using an exoskeleton a patient will perform one locomotion cycle, if she can concentrate on the imaginary leg movement, which can be detected as the desynchronization of the patient's motor rhythm on EEG.

Alexei Ossadtchi is the head of the project with Rosatom "Development of a multi-channel atomic magnetoencephalograph for non-invasive high-resolution brain mapping (AM-MEG)"

The development of a magnetic encephalograph of a new generation on the basis of a compact highly sensitive magnetometric sensor will allow the non-invasive recording of electrical activity of the human brain and heart with previously inaccessible spatial and temporal accuracy. The new technology for measuring superweak magnetic fields, which does not require the use of cryogenic equipment, will significantly reduce the cost of the device, make it accessible to a wide range of clinical and research institutions, and provide superiority in the tasks of diagnosing neurological and cardiac disorders, as well as in cognitive studies.
