Sharper Sense was founded by Charles Rodenkirch ’19SEAS and Columbia University Professor Qi Wang (Biomedical Engineering).
Sharper Sense is wearable neurotechnology that enhances vision, hearing, and touch. Dr. Rodenkirch and Professor Wang developed this technology while working together in Professor Wang’s Neural Engineering Lab at Columbia University. Following the success of their preclinical research, which confirmed Sharper Sense enhanced the sensory performance of animals, the company is now preparing to conduct pilot clinical studies. Sharper Sense can be packaged into fully noninvasive nerve stimulation patches that enhance senses by delivering a comfortable level of electrical current through the skin to activate a specific nerve in the neck in a way that optimizes brain state for perception. This technology has many applications including performance and safety enhancement as well as treatment of sensory processing disorders and sensory loss.
