DUBLIN, June 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Invasive Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Market Overview” report has been added to from offer.

Patients with Locked-in Syndrome, unable to communicate, have been the target population for brain-computer interface research over the past 20 years. In this context, real-time decoding of macroscopic brain states becomes critical.

Patients with locked-in syndrome often suffer from opsoclonus-myoclonus, a condition in which the eyes move seemingly randomly and involuntarily rapidly in the horizontal, vertical, and diagonal directions.

This makes communications extremely difficult, if not impossible, for patients who rely on eye-to-eye communication and typical assistive technologies such as eye movement detection and voice aids are ineffective and, for the most part, useless.

  • Aphasia/dysphasia occurs in 20-30% and anarthria/dysarthria in 40% of acute stroke patients, resulting in difficulty expressing thoughts in language or complete inability to do so (aphasia/ expressive motor dysphasia), as well as difficulty understanding language (receptive aphasia/dysphasia) or speech production (anarthria/dysarthria).
  • About 7.5 million people in United States have difficulty using their voice.
  • About 1 million Americans suffer from aphasia.
  • The number of individuals suffering from voice disorders is 0.98% in a population seeking treatment.
  • 5% to 10% of Americans may have communication disabilities.
  • 54 spinal cord injuries per million population or 17,730 injuries in the United States each year.
  • Approximately 78% of new spinal cord injury cases are male, 22% female.
  • The leading cause of spinal cord injuries are road accidents (39.3%), followed by falls (31.8%), acts of violence (13.5%), sports (8%), medical consequences -surgical (4.3%) and other (3.1%).
  • The leading cause of motor paralysis was stroke (33.7%), followed by spinal cord injury (27.3%) and multiple sclerosis (18.6%).
  • About 1.7% of the US population reported living with some form of paralysis, defined by the study as a central nervous system disorder resulting in difficulty or inability to move the upper or lower limbs.
