Researchers at the University of Washington are in a quest to create a device that would allow people who have been paralyzed by injury or stroke to move their limbs again. With a grant from the National Science Foundation, the goal is to make a device that would be implanted in the brain, interpret brain signals, and deliver the information to the appropriate region of the body.
The researchers are also exploring ways to power the implantable devices wirelessly, so that dependency on batteries can be eliminated.
