GRAphene-based Flexible neural Interfaces for the control of Neuroprosthetic devices (GRAFIN)

Reference number 2017-05109
Coordinator CHALMERS TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLA AKTIEBOLAG - Institutionen för Elektroteknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 954 000
Project duration December 2017 - December 2020
Status Ongoing
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.
