What is the Neuronode Trilogy?

Neuronode Trilogy, the latest device from Control Bionics combining three powerful access methods, provides a lifetime solution for those with paralysis and loss of speech. Faster communication, complete control powered by Grid 3, and a onetime funding application – what more could you ask for?

NeuroNode Trilogy is a 3-in-1 solution for those living with paralysis and loss of speech. Combining touch control, eye control and NeuroNode 3.0 control, the NeuroNode Trilogy is finally the solution that fits to the user’s needs as they change. Combining control methods allows the user to significantly increase communication speed and output up to 133%.

What is the Neuronode 3.0?

At the heart of the NeuroNode Trilogy is the NeuroNode 3.0, the latest generation of the world’s leading wearable EMG control device. The NeuroNode 3.0 is packed with new added benefits – making it more intuitive and flexible than ever.

The NeuroNode 3.0 now offers the combined power of its EMG + NEW 3D Spatial Control. This new control set allows users to choose EMG or Spatial control to access the NeuroNode Trilogy, all in one small, wearable device.


  • Durable solution for everyday use
  • 24 hour+ battery life with easy, hassle-free charging
  • Newly designed wearable, non-adhesive NeuroBand solution
  • Multiple access methods in one device, controlled with the user-friendly NeuroNode Controller Application


  • Wearable, wireless design providing consistent, reliable access regardless of position or environment
  • Less tiring and more consistent than traditional access methods
  • Completely wireless, making it easier for caregivers to attend to the user’s activities of daily living

How does it work?

The NeuroNode 3.0 is placed on the skin over the muscle chosen to be the switch. When you attempt to move that muscle, the NeuroNode detects your bioelectrical (EMG) signals, even if there is no visible muscle movement, and uses these signals to allow you to control Grid 3 preloaded on the Neuronode Trilogy System.

The Neuronode Trilogy System is a revolutionary AAC device suitable for individuals living with conditions like ALS/MND, spinal muscular atrophy, cerebral palsy, or spinal cord injury. Its unique ability to change the access method alongside the user’s needs makes it the ideal communication solution for degenerative conditions.

What can you do with the Neuronode Trilogy?

NeuroNode allows alternative communication and control in order for clients to…

  • Communicate with family, friends, caregivers and clinicians
  • Send and receive text and email messages
  • Browse the web, watch videos and movies
  • Listen to music, radio, and podcasts
  • Read the news
  • Use environmental control systems
  • Explore the world using AT and telepresence robots
  • Control external devices

Who they help

Originally, their EMG assistive technology was developed to help returned servicemen with spinal cord injuries but no brain function impairment to communicate when all else had failed. Today, it successfully helps people with a range of conditions to find their ‘voice’ once more.

These include:

  • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), also known as Motor Neuron Disease (MND)
  • Locked-in Syndrome
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spinal cord injury (SCI).

They have also had some success with people with autism or who have suffered strokes.

Why chose the Neuronode?

While there are many great AAC solutions in the market, the NeuroNode Trilogy is designed to make your life easier. Combining three methods of control with Grid 3 software means one AAC software solution, one SLP evaluation, and one funding application.

For super-users, this means the fastest AAC solution around, and for those with progressive illnesses, it means a solution that changes alongside their needs.

Meet the Trilogy with Lane Rials, M.S., CCC-SLP

“I am Lane Rials, a Speech-Language Pathologist and Regional Sales Consultant for Control Bionics. I am proud to be a part of the Control Bionics team as the technology our company is creating and producing provides multiple access methods including the unique use of EMG/Spatial Control for access to allow people to maintain a connection through communication.

The NeuroNode Trilogy is a 3-in-1 solution for those living with paralysis and loss of speech by combining touch control, eye control, and EMG (electromyography). Combining these access methods in a dedicated Speech-Generating device allows for increased speed and communication output. At the heart of the NeuroNode Trilogy is the NeuroNode 3.0, a wearable EMG control device. Additionally, the NN 3.0 offers the combined power of EMG + 3D Spatial control, allowing users to choose EMG or 3D Spatial control within the NeuroNode 3.0.”

This video is a brief introduction and overview of the NeuroNode Trilogy, their 3-in-1 speech-generating device allowing individuals to access communication via switch scanning with the NeuroNode, eye gaze alone, or the combination of eye gaze and the NeuroNode.
