Neurotech Network


Neurotechnology is the application of medical technology, devices and treatments to improve body function. Hundreds of thousands of people with neurological or psychiatric disabilities have already been helped by neurotechnology. Cochlear implants, for instance, help restore hearing to those who are deaf, neural prosthesis provide movement to those living with paralysis, deep brain stimulation suppresses tremors associated with Parkinson's disease and spine stimulators give relief to those with chronic pain. These are just a few examples of the many medical technologies for people with disabilities that are available today.
