INTRODUCING AUGMENTED BIONICS
Non-Invasive Neurostimulation Prosthetics
At Augmented Bionics, we are building a device that is a non-surgical alternative to cochlear implants. Currently there are 466 million people in the world who suffer from disabling hearing loss, and current production of hearing devices only meets 10% of this need. This is due to high costs and risks involved in surgeries required for most existing hearing devices.
We are solving this problem by providing a non-surgical alternative to cochlear implants that would be worn like a headphone and would wirelessly stimulate the hearing nerve of patients with severe to profound hearing loss, allowing them to hear again without going through surgery.
Easy. Safer. Affordable.
The technology we are developing can also be applied to other neurological impairments. It can potentially be used to restore sight in the visually impaired, help stroke victims rehabilitate faster, help Alzheimer's and Parkinson's patients heal and also help the paraplegic and quadriplegic to walk again.
Currently we are a team of four talented individuals working on the prototype for our hearing device, and have collaborated with The University of Queensland for further Research and Development.
