AN OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN AN EARLY- STAGE COMPANY SURVIVOR ADVISORY GROUP
Attention Stroke Survivors
STROKE SURVIVOR PARTICIPANTS NEEDED
A client of Stroke Recovery Foundation has asked us to recruit stroke survivors to play an advisory role with their early-stage neuro corporation.
Those of you who know us at the Foundation, read our blog or our Constant Contact and Facebook posts know that I believe that the disease called stroke is very underserved. From conversations I have had with many of you, I am sure that you would agree with me.
That said, I am so very pleased that this Corporation is creating a brain injury survivor group, including stroke, to help them move forward with their exciting neurological initiative. Survivor input is certainly important as new initiatives emerge.
The company’s mission is:
“To bring life-changing brain technology to millions of people”.
They seek to accomplish this amazing task by:
“Unlocking the potential of brain-computer interfaces with minimally invasive, high resolution neural implants.”
The survivor advisory team is an evolving initiative, but as currently planned there will be quarterly meetings of the Advisory Group, as well as possibly intermittent calls to various survivors.
You will have the benefit of knowing that you will be part of a team who is doing extraordinarily important work, that if successful, could change the lives of many. In addition, depending on your role, their will be stipends for participants.
Research Study Recruitment
We are recruiting stroke survivors who have the time and interest to assist in this initiative.
I will be conducting the initial screening as well as answering any initial questions you may have. That will be followed by a conversation with a member of the management team who will give you more details about the work and answer any additional questions you may have.
Seamless Experience and All Paid Travel Arrangements
The company’s objective is to make your participation experience as easy and fulfilling as possible. At least initially, meetings and discussions will be conducted on Zoom. Should there be any in-person meetings, the company will cover any approved travel costs.
If you are interested, please email me at Bobm@StrokeRF.org to arrange a mutually convenient time to hold a preliminary conversation regarding your possible participation. I will answer any questions and further discuss the study as well as give you information about the company behind this research.
Operating a computer using only your thoughts! It sounds like science fiction, but, in fact, scientists conducted the first successful experiments in brain–computer interface (BCI) technology in the early 2000s. Paralyzed people have used this technology to control robotic arms, play video games, and send messages with their minds alone. But it has yet to move beyond small-scale research settings and into mainstream medical practice.
The company is taking BCIs into the next era – creating powerful implants that will revolutionize treatment for neurologic diseases.
WHAT AN EXCITING INITIATIVE!
Thank you for your attention.
