SPEAKER PASQUALE FEDELE, CEO

SECTOR: Digital Health

TITLE: BRAINCONTROL

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BrainControl is a platform based on Artificial Intelligence for human-machine interaction through bio-feedback. Its first application was addressed as BCI-based augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), a sort “mental joystick”, allowing people to overcome severe physical and communicative disabilities. BrainControl BCI AAC fills a technological void for patients who are cognitively aware, but completely unable to move or communicate, a state called “locked-in”, and meets many of the unmet needs for patients in less advanced states who are currently using or cannot use eye-tracking systems.

The main focus of BrainControl is the condition of those patients who suffer from severe disabilities caused by degenerative neuromuscular diseases (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, Duchenne, etc.) or ischemic or traumatic injuries. This target can be further segmented into patients in complete locked-in state (CLIS), for whom there is no other technology available on the market, and patients in locked-in state (LIS), who can use, in some cases, other technologies, but who also have unmet needs due to usability limits of most of the available products.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

Liquidweb recently achieved a first round financing of more than € 2 M and is actively looking for a second round to expand its market with the Braincontrol Technology.
