Bio-signals and Electroceuticals
Vivent focuses on the investigation of non-neural electrical communication. Our patented BESP™ (bioelectric signal playback) system records and plays back the body’s own coded electrical signatures and is being developed for personalised electroceutical therapies.
At the same time we have developed crop diagnostic solutions called PhytlSigns which process plant electrical signals to diagnose crop stress before visual symptoms or to drive controlled condition agriculture systems. This is enabling growers to improve yields and crop quality while reducing environmental impacts, using leading edge technology.
Our patented BESP (bioelectric signal playback) system records and plays back the body’s own coded electrical signatures. We believe that these signals may be used for cellular control and signalling over significant areas of the body. We are currently undertaking theoretical research in this area supported by the DARPA RadioBio program.
Professional growers and plant researchers may all gain unique insights into how plants assess and communicate their “state of health” and how they respond to changes in environmental conditions or to attack by pests or diseases. The PhytlSigns bio-sensors record and analyse electrical signals emitted by plants so we can quickly detect their responses to changes in their environment. Phytl Signs products are being designed to help researchers gain insights into plant physiology and to help growers optimise growing conditions while reducing interventions and inputs.
