Connecticut inventor’s technology licensed by NeuroEM
FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Eric Knight of Farmington’s Remarkable Technologies, creator of a technology that will help treat Alzheimer’s disease, has announced that his invention has been licensed by NeuroEM out of Phoenix.
Knight said he hopes to offer licensing opportunities to other companies in the near future.
The technology directs electromagnetic and radio waves at the brain and targets a plaque that has long been suspected to be a cause of Alzheimer’s disease. Knight has been developing his technology for more than five years and patented it in May.
Wave-based treatments have been successful in preventing and reversing cognitive impairment during animal trials, according to a study conducted by the University of South Florida in 2010.
