Virtual reality for pain relief and Stentrode: A brain computer interface that can be implanted in the brain without open brain surgery.

At the Game Developer Conference in 2019 I spoke to David Putrino, PhD, about Mount Sinai’s work on a Neural Lace product called Stentrode. In his talk titled “Pain Medication Reimagined: VR for Chronic Pain” David Putrino spoke briefly about the work (that I understand is led by Thomas J. Oxley, MD, PhD, a neuroscientist at Mount Sinai.) on Stentrode at Mount Sinai

Must watch: A digital spinal cord that streams your thoughts | Thomas Oxley | TEDxSydney

“Stentrode: Moving with the power of thought”

“Minimally Invasive “Stentrode” Shows Potential as Neural Interface for Brain”

“Synchron Initiates First-ever Clinical Trial to Evaluate Thought-to-Text™ Brain-Computer Interface Technology in Patients with Severe Paralysis”

“The new study of the Stentrode, which is being further advanced by Synchron, a company spun off for this very task, will involve testing the safety of the device while using the company’s Thought-to-Text technology and the BrainOS software. BrainOS allows patients to control all kinds of assistive devices by simply thinking of them, and the combination of the technologies may give severely disabled people the ability to gain real independence.”
