Building a direct data interface with the brain that will enable people and improve lives.

THE MISSION

Enabling connection

We are building a direct data interface with the brain to provide technology solutions to unmet medical challenges. A revolutionary leap beyond today’s research-grade brain computer interfaces (BCI), our Connexus® Direct Data Interface (DDI) collects neural signals at an industry-leading high data-rate and is designed for long-term daily use.

Our first clinical application will enable severely motor-impaired people to communicate and independently use a computer, translating their neural signals into synthesized speech, text, and cursor control. We will continue to expand the capabilities of our massively scalable platform to support a pipeline of future applications that could benefit millions.

Where neurotech meets med device

We’ve combined solid medical device manufacturing and commercialization experience with advanced neuroscience and specialized engineering to build the first high data-rate BCI platform for long-term medical use. We were founded in 2015 and are located in the growing neurotech hub of Austin, Texas.
