In Bionic Pioneers: Brave Neurotech Users Blaze the Trail to New Therapies (ISBN: 978-0-9882342-2-2) Jennifer French and James Cavuoto tell the stories of 10 courageous individuals with neurological disabilities who made the decision to participate in a clinical trial or become a recipient of a newly- approved neurotech device to treat their conditions.


Each chapter details the often painful


details of how a neurological disorder has impacted someone’s life with insights into how each person came to accept a novel or experi- mental neurotech therapy and the marvels of that engineering. The book is one of the few health and medicine titles that pays tribute to the users who literally put life and limb on the line to help develop new neurotech therapies. “It’s time that end-users got some recognition for the contributions they’ve made to medical science,” said Cavuoto. Bionic Pioneers is published by Neurotech Press and is available in print and e-book formats.
