CorTec GmbH In this profile, Alexis Karandrea interviews Christina Schwartz to learn more about CorTec and the innovative technologies they offer and are developing for the research and clinical settings. History CorTec's roots stem from a collaboration at the University of Freiburg in Germany with an interdisciplinary team on neurobiologists, engineers, and computer scientists. They began working on the brain interchange technology in an effort to create a system that would ideally be used as part of a brain computer interface (BCI). These BCI's could then be used to help paralyzed patients regain some level of independence in their daily life. After building their first prototype, they saw that the technology, either as a whole or even the individual components, could be used for a variety of other contributions as well. This realization resulted in the formation of CorTec as a spin off in 2010, where they now specialize in producing these electrodes for preclinical and clinical applications. CorTec GmbH
