The era of man-machine communication has begun. Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) has potential to disrupt the way human beings interact, with each other, with computers and digital devices.
Based on a decade of research our vision is bold and the ambition high!
To develop the leading platform for commercialized BCI systems for communication.
BrainTell is a technology project in Dianova´s project portfolio and thus hold the potential to become a promising start-up company with a revolutionary software platform.
Making a real difference for communication challenged patients with BCI
As a key milestone towards this goal, our team has developed the first commercial available application Connect1. Showcasing the high maturation level and proving that our cutting edge technology is at the very forefront of BCI solutions worldwide.
During Q4 2018 Dianova obtained CE-approval on its Connect1 system. This is the first product of the platform, aimed to improve life for people with limited ability to speak and move and later to provide a smarter method for operating a computer for people in general. Connect1 is used as a tool to help them to communicate with people around them. The system is now being adapted to fit specific user needs across different selected hospitals in Denmark and United Kingdom.
Our algorithms make it possible to use different hardware for collecting brainwaves and can analyze these into creating response depending on the particular application. It utilizes several paradigms – e.g. both Visually Evoked Potentials and Motor Imagery i.e. based on vision generated signals or imaginary movement generated signals from different parts of the brain – to increase options for interaction with a computer, including the ease, speed and accuracy of communication.
Partner with us
We are looking for partners who are interested in an application where BCI can make a difference and would be interested in the commercialization of this.
We continue to develop the technology with a clear focus on the platform software, to ultimately be the control mechanism for computers – selections on the screen and input into the computer using brain response without the use of keyboard or a mouse.
The technical details
Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) Brain-Computer Interface (BCI)
Our Connect1 BCI system consists of a number of virtual buttons shown on a PC monitor. We can detect which “virtual” button the user is looking at by analyzing the neural activity from a single electrode placed on the scalp of the user.
