We are happy to share that Silver Paddles has organized a fundraiser 30 July - 13 Aug, 2016, to support TCNL. A group of outdoor adventurists will be crossing the Boundary Waters in Minnesota using paddle boards and canoes. They have received items from several generous sponsors to sell, with all proceeds going to TCNL.
Vision substitution technology originally developed at TCNL has been successfully commercialized by Wicab, Inc. (Middleton, WI). Wicab recently issued a press release announcing FDA clearance for the BrainPort® V100 device to be marketed in the US as an oral electronic vision aid for orientation, mobility, and object recognition.
2014 has been an active year for TCNL. We launched studies investigating symptom reduction in individuals with traumatic brain injury and advanced (wheelchair-stage) multiple sclerosis, started using a new PoNS device with datalogging capabilities, and developed new methods for quantifying eye movement control, which is intimately linked with the balance system and therefore potentially a sensitive indicator of brain damage.
TCNL has moved to University Research Park. Our new ground-floor location is easier to access for our volunteer subjects with movement impairments and has ample free parking. Our new address is:
455 Science Drive, Suite 165
Madison, WI 53711
Please watch our Forward page for other upcoming changes at TCNL.
We are excited to announce the publication of our recent work with MS subjects in the manuscript Non-invasive Neuromodulation to Improve Gait in Chronic Multiple Sclerosis: a Randomized Double Blind Controlled Pilot Trial, in the Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation. This trial demonstrated improvement in gait for subjects with MS. To read the article, follow the link: http://www.jneuroengrehab.com/content/11/1/79
