INI Spin-Off Companies

The Institute of Neuroinformatics' focus on neuromorphing engineering has led to the development of multiple new devices. Many are now commercially available thanks to the creation of startup companies, all founded by INI members and Alumni. The products available range from sophisticated new sensors to complete virtual reality systems used in neurorehabilitation.
