New York City Dept. of Ed. Invests in Innovative New ‘NeuroNode’ Technology from Control Bionics to Assist Students with Severe Physical Limitations
Cincinnati, Ohio – The New York City Department of Education’s Center for Assistive Technology (CAT) recently acquired innovative new technology known as the ‘NeuroNode’, that offers an access solution for students with severe physical limitations and paralysis.
After seeing the Control Bionics NeuroNode technology demonstrated at the January 2018 Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) Conference in Orlando, CAT arranged for a NeuroNode assessment for one New York City 3rd grade student, Maeve, with Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA.
The NeuroNode is the world’s first wearable electromyography or EMG assistive technology device that non-invasively detects the electrical activity of a muscle to automatically communicate with and control a full spectrum of external devices and platforms.
