BATTELLE NeuroLife™ Neural Bypass Technology

Six years ago, Ian Burkhart broke his neck diving into the waves at the Outer Banks, permanently losing feeling and control of his body below the shoulders. In 2014, researchers at Battelle and The Ohio State University gave him some of that control back with Battelle NeuroLife™, an experimental neural bridge technology that allowed him to control his fingers, hand and wrist using conscious thought. Ian recently shared his story at SxSW, and researchers published the study results in the April, 2016 online edition of Nature.
