Requirements Investigation and Practical Application of Neural Interface for Treatment of Cognitive Impairment


The goal of this internship is to support a project that NorDocs Technologies Inc. has undertaken to develop and improve a biomedical therapy device. This device contains a human-computer interface, and is smartphone-based. The device will be used for treating mild cognitive impairments resulting from an adverse response. An example of mild cognitive impairment is a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), also referred to as a mini-stroke. The internship will involve the evaluation of the device in a realistic setting, and extensive testing of the device design and application is expected to result in modifications to the design. Three literature reviews will be carried out during the internship: two related to the device efficacy and one related to compliance of the subjects. NorDocs Technologies Inc. is expecting to benefit from a tweaking of the product design, potential validation of their medical device, and finally, a positive outcome can lead to clinical trials.
