What is envisioned is a system of electrochemical and electrical monitoring coupled with directed stimulation to bypass damaged nerve tissue. The combination of information detection, conversion algorithm and programmed stimulation will provide regeneration of the neural commands. Further it is envisioned that a pump can be added to provide neural modular/growth factors to maintain the nerve tissue.
