Buffalo General joins Mount Sinai, UPMC to conduct technical test of Synchron brain-computer interface
The Gates Vascular Institute at Buffalo Medical Center, New York, is collaborating with brain-computer interface company Synchron to begin a study on functional recovery in patients with severe paralysis.
According to Synchron’s March 20 press release, Buffalo General is joining New York-based Mount Sinai Health System and Pittsburgh-based UPMC as participating health systems in the trial.
The team trial will primarily focus on safety, and will also begin to evaluate the effectiveness of the synchronous switch, a brain-computer interface device designed to allow people with or without reduced mobility to control technology using their thoughts.
Synchron was designated a revolutionary device by the FDA in August 2020.
