ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the potential help of neurally controlled systems, such as brain-machine interfaces, in neurotechnology therapy for various disabilities. It mentions that such technology may serve as an alternative treatment option for patients with motor and sensory disabilities. It also notes that neurotechnology can also provide solutions for patients with stroke, spinal cord injury and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
