A new spin-off called Bottneuro AG was founded on January 8, 2021. Its team develops plant-based, ultra-thin neural implants for the spine and brain under the leadership of Bekim Osmani and Tino Töpper, with Raphael Guzman acting as clinical expert. Patients suffering from chronic neuropathic pain, Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases will benefit from its NENI® neuromodulation technology. This project is supported by the Gebert Rüf Stiftung.
