Advancing Neurotechnology

We're working at the intersection of science and technology to pioneer ways to help people overcome devastating neurological damage and disorders. We're offering real hope by developing new technologies and progressing the state of the art.

“I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help push science and technology further and possibly help others living with paralysis.” Ian Burkhart, first NeuroLife® technology clinical trial patient

Solving the Impossible and Changing Lives

Battelle is harnessing the power of our technologies to go beyond paralysis and enhance physical and cognitive function.



We're assisting the body to go beyond physical limitations where biology is broken.

We're restoring the body by optimizing recovery through targeted neuroplasticity and bioelectric medicine.


We're advancing the healthy body to perform beyond current physical and cognitive abilities.


Better Stroke Injury Assessment

After a stroke, it’s hard for physicians to know exactly what’s going on inside their patients. 

Battelle hopes to change that with our electromyography (EMG) system. The prototype system aims to more accurately assess the level of injury in stroke patients.
