BrainQ’s technology scans for movements in a patient's central nervous system and creates a tailored, non-invasive treatment protocol designed to help paralyzed patients move their limbs.

 

Founded in 2011 by Yotam Drechsler, Yaron Segal, and Esther Shohami, BrainQ employs a ten-person team and is currently conducting clinical trials in Israel. The company said in a statement it would use the funding to support additional clinical trials and to further develop and commercialize its technology.

 

BrainQ was selected for Google’s AI startup accelerator in San Francisco in November 2017.
