The Neuro-Informatics Laboratory at Mayo Clinic is developing devices that make spinal surgery safer and provide alternatives to spinal fusion.
By coupling efforts with domain experts in the Division of Engineering, Dr. Bydon's lab is translating its discoveries in spinal biomechanics into devices that will change the delivery of spinal surgery. The lab's innovative devices will reduce the need for additional surgery and improve patients' quality of life through improved functionality and mobility.
The laboratory gains expertise in electrical engineering, computer science and wearable device technology through collaboration with the Mayo Clinic Special Purpose Processor Development Group. Translational expertise and guidance in delivering new devices to market is achieved through Mayo Clinic's Center for Innovation and Mayo Clinic Ventures.
