Neurotechnologies to reverse paralysis (sponsored by Fondation Defitech)
The unconventional union of a neurosurgeon and a neuroscientist is transforming the treatment of paralysis. To reactivate the spinal cord, they deliver electrical stimulation via bioelectronic implants, pharmacological agents, gene therapies and robot-aided training. This approach already restored walking in paraplegic patients. These neurotechnologies herald the advent of multifaceted neurorestorative interventions – crystallized in a new center supported by Logitech founder Daniel Borel.
