Neural Interfaces as Enablers for Advanced Prosthetic Function
On February 23, 2012 WPI’s Bioengineering Institute hosted the third Neuroprosthetic’s Symposium. The symposium brought together scientists engineers and advocates focused on the ultimate development of an Advanced Neurally Integrated Prosthetic. Presenters discussed issues concerned with biomaterials, bioelectronics and biointerfaces that are necessary to be addressed before the concept of an Advanced Prosthetic can be taken from the laboratory to the clinic. There were contributions from the Universities of Florida, Central Florida, Utah, Kent State, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health, the NIH and DARPA.
