The research and goal of the Center for Innovative Neurotechnology for Neural Repair (CINNR)is the development of novel neural modulation technology for functional restoration of spine and brain injury. These technologies will be developed by working in conjunction with Neuro-Engineering at Brown.
We are currently working on the development of a technology for patients with spinal cord injury for the restoration of lower extremity use and bladder function.
Rhode Island Hospital is a principal site for a DARPA clinical trial for the development of an Intelligent Spine Interface (ISI).
