This is what MT-CONNECT and MedTech Summit 2018 have to offer.
Trends in Neurostimulation
Neuroprostheses are used to compensate neural functional disorders with a motoric or sensory background. Recorded bioelectric signals control the electrical stimulation in a closed loop system. The presentation describes the use of new double side thin film microelectrodes for stimulation and recording and their possible application for example in vestibular disorders, control of hand prostheses and tremor suppression. Possibilities of distributed interacting micro-implants are shown. Avoiding cables and connectors could increase the lang-time stability. Applications could be the gastrointestinal electrical stimulation as weil as restoration of grasping function in tetraplegia.
