Brain-computer interfacefor users with partial or complete paralysis of motor functions

We provide a non-invasive Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) enabling fully paralyzed patients to communicate independently.

BirgerMind® was established with the objective to help Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Motor Neurone Disease (MND) patients regain their ability to use e-mail, social networks, to generate speech out of text and call for help, to manage contacts and keep track on writings and notes, all by means of flexible ALS-friendly brain-reading headwear. BirgerMind’s hardware and software platform adapts to users’ brain signals by means of custom-tailored machine learning algorithms, and delivers a dedicated user interface, which is intuitive for patients with locked-in state.

The main focus is on ease of use and fast set-up.
