g.tec medical engineering GmbH develops and produces state-of-the-art brain-computer interfaces and neurotechnologies that are used worldwide. Current application areas of g.tec’s hardware and software include:

  • Motor rehabilitation
  • Communication with patients suffering from disorders of consciousness (coma, locked-in)
  • Planning of brain tumor and epilepsy surgeries
  • Controlling external robots, prostheses and digital programs
  • Brain research and neuroscience experiments.

The recoveriX therapy was first offered in Schiedlberg (Upper Austria) in 2016 for stroke patients and patients with neurological disorders. 2023 recoveriX became available for patients with MS. recoveriX is the first brain-computer interface rehabilitation system that links mental activities (especially the imagination of movements) with real-time visual and tactile feedback.

Christoph Guger and Günter Edlinger started developing brain-computer interfaces (BCI) about 20 years ago, after presenting the first portable BCI system in 1999 at the BCI Meeting in Rensselaerville, New York. Fore more than 20 years, g.tec has been a major part of multi-national research projects to study and develop brain-computer interface for neurorehabilitation.
