CTRL-labs

CTRL-labs develops brain-machine interface technology.

CTRL-labs is developing an electromyography-based armband that reads nerve signals that travel from the brain to the fingers. The signals are translated into desired intentions, enabling thought-to-text and moving objects. The company uses neuroanatomy to identify individual muscle fibers and reconstruct the activity of individual neurons that control those muscle fibers.

CTRL-labs’ armband is lined with electrodes that measure electrical pulses along the neurons in the arm that are transmitting signals from the brain to the muscles. These signals coming from the neurons are intentions to move and can be detected before the person moves or even if they do not move.

CEO and co-founder Thomas Reardon previously founded Avegadro and worked at Microsoft. Reardon co-founded the Worldwide Web Consortium and was an architect of XML and CSS. Reardon earned a PhD in Neuroscience from Columbia University.Co-founder and CSO Patrick Kaifosh received his PhD in Neuroscience from Columbia University, was a Co-Founder & Board Member at Geomechanica, Inc., and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellow. Co-founder Tim Machado earned his PhD in Neuroscience from Columbia University, was a Graduate Fellow of the National Science Foundation and won the 2015 Kavli Award for Distinguished Research in Neuroscience.
