Creating complex systems
Devices developed by the Wyss Center use technology to sense or activate the nervous system, sophisticated materials for implantation or application to the body, algorithms and electronics for operation, and a team to ensure interoperability of the entire system.
The System Integration Platform includes electronic and mechanical workshops to assemble and test advanced device prototypes.
It also provides technical support and equipment to allow device testing and validation of integrated neurotechnology systems in close interaction with the Neural Microsystems Platform.
- Neurotechnology software engineering experts.
- Real time operating systems and wireless communication to allow technology to sense neural and body signals, interpret those signals and act upon the nervous system to restore or replace functions like lost vision, hearing or movement.
- Robotics that can operate a range of autonomous systems from prosthetic hands to dexterous mechanical limbs that can feel and manipulate.
- The platform also has advanced mechanical and electronics workshops to manufacture advanced device prototypes.
