What is a BCI and why?

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are systems which can isolate specific brain signals to interpret cognitive and sensory-motor functions into physical movement for patients who suffer from paralysis.


According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are about 11,000 new cases of spinal cord injury every year  and 270,000 victims residing in the United States. With this issue at hand, BrainCheck is dedicated to redefining brain computer interfaces by addressing reliability with an emphasis on portability.  BrainCheck is composed of experienced innovators striving to develop and design improvements within BCI technology with a focus on restoring hand gestures.


The perspectives and values of BrainCheck were moulded by the collaborative minds of biomedical and materials science engineers from the University of California, Irvine. Our mission is to empower paralyzed patients to regain hand movements with the assistance of our portable, affordable, and user-friendly brain computer interface.
