GRAphene-based Flexible neural Interfaces for the control of Neuroprosthetic devices (GRAFIN)
|Coordinator||CHALMERS TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLA AKTIEBOLAG - Institutionen för Elektroteknik|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 1 954 000|
|Project duration||December 2017 - December 2020|
|Venture||FLAG ERA joint transnational call 2017|
Purpose and goal
This project aims at exploring the potential of graphene-based technologies in neural interfaces for motor neuroprostheses. As a first trial in humans, graphene electrodes will be tested on amputees to record electromyographic signals and to provide sensory feedback via electrical stimulation
Expected results and effects
The results of this project will push forward the forefront of graphene technology and increase the TRL of graphene medical devices by advancing towards clinical acceptance of graphene materials.
Planned approach and implementation
This is a 3-year European project under the FLAG-ERA framework. Chalmers University of Technology, as the Swedish partner, is in charge of the application and validation of the graphene-based neuromuscular interfaces.
