Researchers have developed a new method to prevent bacterial infections, by covering a graphene-based material with bactericidal molecules.
The team of the Dynamic HIPS are working on a hip replacement simulator that will help future surgeons to practice the intervention.
In order to quickly customize implants with complex structures, scientists use 3D printing technology to prepare Ti-Mo alloy implants, and then adjust the microstructure and performance through subsequent heat treatment.
Scientists have used an implanted sensor to record the brain signals associated with handwriting, and used those signals to create text on a computer in real time.
Engineers have developed the smallest single-chip system that is a complete functioning electronic circuit - and implantable chip visible only in a microscope.
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.
