Future-driven neurotechnology

Phantom Neuro is a future-driven neurotechnology company, spun out of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. We are creating the world’s first minimally invasive muscle-machine interface for control of robotic prosthetic limbs, robotic exoskeletons, and beyond.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between modern-day robotics and individuals with limb differences.

Phantom Neuro’s team is comprised of the best and brightest minds at the forefront of medical innovation. The combination and our team’s unique backgrounds and our user-centric decision making furthers our mission to enhance people’s lives.
