This podcast's purpose is to bring together the field of neuroprosthetics/brain machine interfaces/brain implants in an understandable conversation about the current topics and breakthroughs.

We hope to replace needing to read scientific papers on new research in an easy to digest way.

People can share thoughts or ideas to facilitate 'idea sex' to make the field of brain implants a smaller and more personal space.

Scott Kim is the Co-Founder and CEO at Neofect. Neofect provides technologies that work to provide stroke victims with rehabilitation devices that can increase their range of motion. These devices include smart gloves and ankle braces. In this episode, Scott Kim discusses how Neofect technology is assisting stroke victims. 


Top three takeaways: 

  1. The user receives a smart-glove and a tablet with the Neofect App. 
  2. Each therapeutic session consists of eight different “training games” that allow users to regain mobility lost from a stroke injury. 
  3. This technology allows users to achieve rehabilitation results from their own homes. 



[0:00] Ladan introduces the episode and the guest, Scott Kim.  


[2:40] Scott Kim describes the beginnings of Neofect and their devices. 


[5:40] The smart glove works by measuring six targets of motion guided by the therapist coach. 


[7:50] An initial range of motion for each activity is captured as a baseline, then progress is determined over time through improved performance. 


[10:55] The therapists at Neofect report a 10% improvement in the range of motion of users. 


[15:00] While the main target with the device is stroke victims, the technology can be applied to other injuries in the future. 


[18:00] The company recently launched Neofect Connect, which gives users daily reading and training games.
