Dutch venture capitalists have invested one million euros in MindAffect, a Dutch ALS-start-up. MindAffect is located at Novio Tech Campus, where they will be further developing their unique ‘brain computer interface’.
One of the initiators of MindAffect is Peter Desain, professor artificial intelligence at Radboud University: “Our invention enables tracking of the direction people are looking at, by measuring brain activity. This activity is translated to a computer that forms letters and words. This way our technology can help people speak again, whether they suffer from ALS or experienced a cerebral infarct.”
Now a group of venture capitalists have invested one million euros in the ALS-start-up. Ivo de la Rive Box, director at MindAffect, is proud of the investment: “We are proud that we gained trust from so many different parties in the market. It helps us further developing our technology to a product for people who lost their ability to communicate.”
