Overcoming technological barriers in wireless brain-machine-body interfaces to empower individuals with multiple sclerosis: the new B-CRATOS paradigm shift begins
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the world’s most common neurological conditions and the leading cause of non-traumatic disability in young adults, especially women. While there is currently no cure for MS, the condition can be managed through specialized help. The H2020 4 years B-CRATOS project, coordinated by Our Department started on March 1st, 2021 and aims at creating the first battery-free high-speed wireless in-body communication platform to overcome technological barriers and help individuals with MS.
Researchers at the Division of Solid-State Electronics involved in multimillion SEK project on wireless body area networks
The future, where we humans could control prosthetic parts of our bodies with our thoughts, is getting each time closer. In that direction, progress is now being made as part of an EU project in which researchers from the Division of Solid-State Electronics are making it possible for the brain to communicate with smarter prostheses via wireless networks inside the body. A new paradigm of wireless communication inside the body and an artificial skin with improved tactile capacity are among the foreseen groundbreaking developments. The coordinator of this EU project entitled B-CRATOS is Robin Augustine from the Division of Solid-State Electronics.
