Dr. Heidi and Andreas Forsland, CEO of Cognixion talk about innovations in communication that literally provide a voice (their own) to those challenged with physical or mental limitations.
Andreas Forsland, Founder of Cognixion, invented a revolutionary sensory communication system that enables people to communicate using body language – including a direct brain computer interface (BCI) that translations brainwaves into communication. His startup has won the prestigious Roddenberry Prize, the Gold Edison Award for Social Impact, the Singularity University Global Grand Challenge for Education for its potential to impact over a billion lives as well as the Global Elevate Award.
Prior to Cognixion, Andreas envisioned and grew remarkable design teams at Citrix, Philips Electronics, Progressive Insurance, IBM and has pioneered innovative solutions that have disrupted markets and created new categories across consumer digital lifestyles, mobile communication, and healthcare, improving lives and revenues.
Andreas has also spoken around the world on topics of innovation, transforming healthcare, universal design and most memorably, the ‘Future of Communication’ at the Library of Alexandria, Egypt to an audience of over 1000 Muslim IEEE member engineers, inspiring collaboration and unity through new methods of communication.
This episode is brought to you by my wellbeing tech of choice, Oska Pulse. It has helped relieve my chronic pain caused by Lyme disease so that I can get back to work, and life in general.
Oska Pulse is a Pain Relief and Recovery Device using Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF). It creates an electromagnetic field that pulsates while it modulates the damaged cells to squeeze the toxins out and opens the cells to allow nutrients (potassium, sodium and magnesium) to flow into the cell. The Oska Pulse puts the damaged cells in the best situation to repair themselves and then replicates the electrical signals your body creates to fix the damaged cells.
