Scientists at The German Primate Center want to use genetic engineering methods to improve cochlear implants.
Engineers have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin.
BrainGate researchers demonstrated the first human use of a wireless transmitter capable of delivering high-bandwidth neural signals.
Professor Dr Henning Windhagen is a great fan of semi-automatic systems in the OR that help with implants but leave the surgeon in the driver’s seat.
Researchers have demonstrated MRI compatibility in their soft electrode arrays – a crucial step in translation to the clinic.
Researchers have fabricated 3D scaffold implants containing antibiotics at high temperatures. These scaffolds support bone regeneration and manage the bone infections.
Researchers have shown that lab-created heart valves implanted in young lambs for a year were capable of growth within the recipient.
World-first 3D printed oesophageal stents developed by the University of South Australia could revolutionize the delivery of chemotherapy drugs.
Scientists have designed a hydrogel membrane that may be used to house optical glucose sensing materials toward building a biosensor for monitoring sugar levels in diabetics.
Researchers have enabled a quadriplegic man to control a pair of prosthetic arms with his mind.
More researchers and companies are moving into the brain-computer interfaces, yet major challenges remain, from user training to the reality of invasive brain implant procedures.
Researchers have developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by smashing together powder particles at supersonic speed.
In a research-first, scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
